On April 18, Colle Farmers Market comments on an article published by Bali Daily, which discusses the disinterest in organic produce in Bali due to high prices.
According to the article published by the Bali Daily, many farmers and consumers in Bali still do not understand the health and environmental benefits of organic food. The article says people generally lack interest in organic fruits and vegetables because they cost more than regular-priced produce. One organic farmer in Bali, Gede Santiarsa says his usual customers are a group of star-rated hotels and restaurants. However, out of those major buyers, only two purchase organic produce on a regular basis due to the financial impact.
A representative from leading organic farmers market, Colle Farmers Market, says one solution for decreasing prices is to add more organic farms. “If more farmers adopted organic farming practices, the produce would be made more affordable,” the rep says. “With more organic produce entering the market, there will be more for consumers to buy and that should lower prices.”
To encourage more farmers to go organic, the Colle rep suggests educating the public on how beneficial organic food is. “Organic farming is highly sustainable because the fertilizers are all natural,” the Colle rep says. “That means that there are no harmful substances entering the soil. Everything used is safe for the environment and for your body. If the local government supports organic farming, it would be good to facilitate public educational programs or advertisements that inform people about the advantages. Cities could also organize local outdoor farmers markets that boast organic produce so everyone can learn about it.”
