Dispelling the Myths of Organic Food

Due to food safetyconcerns, the public, especially the urban middle class, is increasinglyturning to organic food products. As of 2013, China had 731 certified organicfood companies with annual sales reaching 13.48 billion yuan. The rapiddevelopment of the market has even prompted investors with no agriculturalexperience to join the fray, such as Wanda Group, conglomerate Legend Holdings,and beverage giant Huiyuan.

Organic food isnot only a hot topic in China; the term “organic” is a buzzword worldwide. Thedifference is that European consumers’ love for organic food is not primarily dueto concerns over food safety. Instead, it is more about reducing the damagechemical fertilizers and pesticides do to the environment in order tocompensate for the ecological environment.
