This is a Green Initiatives event
Organic, But At What Cost?
Green Drinks May Forum
Organic food has been “hot” for several years globally now and China has also embraced the movement with gusto. The number of boutique shops and even mainstream grocers selling organic food has exploded in both Tier 1 & 2 cities. Ongoing food safety scares have driven Chinese consumers to paying premium prices for products they can confirm are fit for consumption.
The organic movement is gradually going from niche to mainstream; however, questions remain around affordability, transparency and scalability. The question of affordability comes into question not only for consumers, but also for farmers who do not want to be left behind but may not have the resources to certify their products.
