New York, NY (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
Philippe van den Bossche, an impact investor and advocate of sustainable agriculture, comments on organic farming’s royal endorsement by Prince Charles.
According to the November 12, 2013 article published by Reuters, titled, “Prince Charles defies critics to make new plea for organic farming,” Prince Charles has decided to publicly endorse the organic farming industry as part of an overall campaign to preserve the environment. Prince Charles has long supported organic farming. In 1986, he converted his entire country estate of Highgrove to “organic farming methods.”
The heir to the throne recently voiced his concerns about conventional farming practices in an article for Country Life magazine. “The pressure from global competition, the effects of climate change and the spiraling costs of fuel and feed only add to the difficulty,” he says. “Science is fundamental if we are to make sustainable agriculture more productive, I believe it is the combination of the best of traditional techniques with the best of modern knowledge that will make the difference we so urgently need.”
Philippe van den Bossche, an impact investor and advocate of sustainable agriculture, says it is very important for a high-status public figure like Prince Charles to take the initiative in supporting the organic farming industry. “If there is any lack of support for the organic farming industry right now, it is due to the shortage of information and awareness that is being made available to the public,” he says. “Having someone like Prince Charles, who has global notoriety, to bring these issues to the forefront is important for the future of the organic farming industry.”
Philippe van den Bossche is an impact entrepreneur and investor and Chairman/Owner of Advancing Eco Agriculture (AEA), a leading organic agricultural and horticultural consulting and manufacturing company located in Middlefield, Ohio. AEA provides consulting services and specialty nutritional products to farms throughout the United States and Canada. Mr. van den Bossche is an advocate for organic farming and agriculture.
