This is no secret that organic food costs more than conventional food, it even goes up to double the price of conventional food. Conventional vegetables for example makes use of pesticides and fertilisers for optimum and quality yield compared to organic which uses no such input.
If no such inputs are being used then the cost of production decreases right, consequently the price should reflect this. But why is it that organic are still more expensive than conventional?
The answer is simple, it requires more labor-intensive effort to produce organic food and it takes longer to grow than conventional food as everything is done with proper balance of nature. Also, this is pure economics, the demand for organic food being higher than the supply, the price will obviously be high.
Let`s step into the shoes of an organic farmer for one moment. He is producing food for us using eco-friendly techniques and putting much effort into producing good quality products, doesn’t his products deserve this particular high price? Imagine a world where chemicals are destroying our environment?
