Go Organic – Why?

Through organic agriculture smallholder farmers sustain natural resources, increase agricultural productivity and earn a price premium for their certified organic produce. This raises farmers’ household income which is reinvested in health, education and food. For this reason, organic agriculture helps to build sustainable livelihoods.
