Ecocert Launches Organic Certification Program In Indian State

August 7, 2010: 04:53 AM EST
Farmers in the east Indian state of Bihar are looking to take advantage of the global demand for organic commodities, which is growing 25% annually, but first they need to have their farming methods certified as organically grown. Ecocert, a French certification agency for organic, fair trade and good agricultural practices (GAP) standards, says it is working with Indian farmers to achieve certification. The agency has launched an affordable program for small agri-entrepreneurs that includes an explanation of the types and requirements of organic certification, the certification process and the available world markets for certified produce. Farmers in Bihar grow jute, litchi, cosmetic raw materials such as herbal and aromatic plants, and makhana.
