Organic Evolution

The Australian Organic Market Report has just been published and indicates the surge in organic food production down under. In the next three years the land allocated to organic food production is estimated to increase by 75%. In Australia there is now 11 million hectares down to organic food production, the majority being used for grazing livestock. Western Australia has a different mix with two thirds or organic land dedicated to fruit production. In Australia the market is now worth $578 Million with major retailers offering over 500 different organic lines. Ref: Western Australian, July 28th 2008 Article by Jodie Thompson
