Taiwan: they get it

Date Published: 11/11/2009

Taiwan is marking its Organic Agriculture Day today and there are some comments from the Speaker of the country’s legislature that sum up a few key issues, as reported in the Taiwan News.

Much like what we heard at our Selling Organics: What’s the Story? conference last month, he’s talking about the growing scarcity of resources and the need to capitalise on forward planning and better explanation of what ‘organic’ means with regard to food.

And while organic is only a tiny, tiny part of the farming picture in Taiwan right now, they obviously have ambition and pro-active plans (is Australia listening?).
