  • Marketing organic products in Africa (Feb 2013)

    In Africa, the demand for organic products has been growing steadily over the years. Many grass-roots initiatives in Africa have started to sell organic products in neighbourhood shops, street markets or in organic shops in a town. Organic food offers multiple benefits and attractive income potential for producers, processors and trading companies all over the world. Certified organic products provide access to attractive local and international markets, where higher prices and incomes are possible. As a result, organic products from Africa are currently exported to many countries, particularly to Europe. Starting organic farming is only the first step - selling the products is another challenge. How can producers, processors and traders in Africa be successful in the organic business? T...

In recent years the world has become increasingly aware of health and environmental issues...Around the world consumers have concerns about the quality and safety of the food they eat. Pesticides, fertilizers and veterinary drugs all impact on the food we eat each day, in response organic farming has blossomed. Organic farming refers to farming practice done without the use of synthetic chemicals like pesticides, fungicides, insecticides or any genetically modified seeds, organic farmers use a variety of techniques that sustain ecosystems and reduce pollution while they improve the production and quality of nutrition from the produce we consume. This includes crop rotation, natural composting, environmentally friendly pest control and homeopathy in order to produce foods that are free of all artificial additives. Traditional African agricultural methods have always been organic and have been a big influence in today's modern organic agriculture. Artificial fertilizers and chemicals came to prominence in the late 20th century while traditional African agricultural production did not use biocides and was entirely dependent on the natural resource base, just one more example of how Africa is the cradle of mankind... Formal, certified organic farming in South Africa is still small, but because of the success of this methodology for emerging farmers it is now anticipated that small-holder and subsistence farmers may feed as much as two-thirds of the population organic food is not a trend or only for the wealthy, it is the future of food production on our continent. Join James Mmako age 24 who is keen to work in the agricultural sector as an organic farmer.
