Following an article posted on The Times of India website, Colle Farmers Market comments on ‘National Safe Food Day’ in India.

Colle Farmers Market issues a response to India’s recognition of ‘National Safe Food Day,’ saying that the philosophy behind the celebration aligns with the principles behind the organic food movement.

According to The Times of India, organic food groups gathered at JantarMantar in Delhi on February 9 to celebrate the third anniversary of a “'Citizens' action for safe food',” “the first successful opposition to genetically modified (GM) food in India and to continue their opposition to the entry of such food products in India.”

Dhiru Mistry, a member of the Jatan Trust, welcomed capable travelers to make the trip to Delhi in order to join the JantarMantar gathering. Spreading a pro-organic food message is one of the driving sentiments behind ‘National Safe Food Day,’ which The Times of India says was instituted “to celebrate the fact that in India, we have been able to keep away an unknown, and unproven-to-be-safe GMO called Bt Brinjal away from our plates. Let us make sure that we have safe food."

Colle Farmers Market recognizes India’s “National Safe Food Day” as a milestone for those committed to the organic movement. Colle commends those celebrating “National Safe Food Day” on their decision to continue evaluating their lifestyle choices, and purchase food that is naturally grown rather than food treated with chemicals or preservatives.

Colle, an advocate for organic farmers and the organic farming industry, encourages members of the organic community to celebrate their own ‘National Safe Food Day’ and continue to support the organic food industry. Colle Farmers Market considers the pillars behind ‘National Safe Food Day’ an excellent expression of the laudable desire to preserve and distribute food in accordance with the principles of organic farming.
