The main problem of organic produce is the price. And quite understandably so.
The last three generations have experienced a great reduction in the costs of producing food. The advances in technology and chemistry have made cheap food available to all. Countries would slowly move their attention from agriculture to more ‘skilled’ work and that shift would be a measurement standard of a country’s’ ‘development’. This shift has given us a misconception on how much food is actually worth. That extra cost is being borne by the environment.
As people get more conscious, the traditional ways of farming are coming back into play. This transition to the old methods of farming makes the higher price for food inevitable.
So how do we consume environmentally-friendly foods without draining our wallets? Organic can still be affordable if we keep other, mostly indirect costs down. No fancy design or labeling, minimum marketing, and removing numerous middle-men from the producer to the consumer.
