G.T. Deve Gowda calls for promotion of organic farming – The Hindu

Posted: December 12, 2019 at 12:45 pm

without comments

Former Minister G.T. Deve Gowda on Thursday emphasised the need for promoting organic farming.

Speaking to reporters after inaugurating Parisara, an organic food store at Sharadadevi Nagar, he said cultivation and consumption of organic food items is not only good for soil health, but also human health.

Cautioning people against the ill-effects of consuming food from crops cultivated using chemicals and fertilisers, Mr. Gowda said society has lately started waking up to the advantages of consuming organic food. He claimed that both his family as well as that of former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah have shifted to consuming only organic food items.

Recalling that organic farming had received a boost during the previous tenure of B.S. Yediyurappa as Chief Minister, he expressed hope that the present government under him would renew the States support for cultivation of organic crops.

The organic food store makes available a variety of millets, ragi and rice grown without using chemical fertilisers. Apart from millets, desi ghee, organic cooking oil, honey, jaggery, tea and medicine are also available at the store, according to a statement from Parisara.

Organic Grower Summit looks to the future – Produce Blue Book

Posted: at 12:45 pm

without comments

PRESS RELEASE Monterey, CA (December 9, 2019) The Organic Grower Summit tackled a wide variety of issues and topics, attracting hundreds of organic growers, producers, and processors to its third annual conference held in Monterey, CA last week.

Presented by California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF) and the Organic Produce Network (OPN) BB #:338018, the event featured a sold-out exhibition floor showcasing companies advancing the latest trends in soil and plant health, bio-pesticides, seed, food safety, and ag technology.

Kicking off the two-day event were a pair of educational intensives focused on organic soil health practices and growth of ag technology.

Haley Baron, education and research program associate with the Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFR) and the moderator for the session on soil health, says farmers are desperate for information. Conventional ag has had the benefit of hundreds of millions of dollars in research over many years, she said, and now, on the organic side were playing catch-up. The goal is to give organic growers practical advicea toolbox that is science-based and backed by research.

Baron said conferences like OGS are an important vehicle in which to disseminate information culled from the latest research and gain valuable insight into areas and issues important to growers and ripe for research.

In the second educational intensive, founders and CEOs from six of the most progressive ag tech firms shared their thoughts on precision and automated technology-and talked about the challenges in supply chain efficiency and food waste management.

Our tent has gotten bigger, said OPN co-founder Tonya Antle, and with that comes new challenges. We wanted this summit to address growers real-world issues. With that in mind, OGS organized a series of educational sessions which offered a dynamic mix of old school experiencesuccessful strategies born out of years of working the fields day in and day outand new technologies and markets offering a glimpse into the future.

Keynote presenters offered three unique perspectives on how organic agriculture can drive social and economic change: hemp as a possible plastics replacement, sustainable ranching with a social conscious, and an ambitious initiative to sequester in soils one trillion tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

According to keynote presenter David Perry, Indigo Ag President and CEO, he aims to eventually pay participating farmers $15 to $20 per ton of carbon that they sequester using many of the tools already familiar to organic growers. Called the Terraton Initiative, Perry said regenerative farming practices can improve both the quality of soil and the profitability of farms, while at the same time reducing global warming. The Terraton Initiative has already signed up 13 million farmers.

The educational sessions focused on the nitty gritty issues facing organic growers every day: how to manage water and pests, compost composition, increasing yield and quality and, of course, profitabilityhow to thrive in a tough and demanding business. From emerging hemp and cannabis markets to changing consumer attitudes, cost pressures, and the economics of ever-expanding regulations and certifications, the educational sessions provided a platform for lively debate and back-and-forth discussion.

One family that has navigated those issues and built a successful multi-generational business was honored at OGS with the Grower of the Year award, sponsored by AGCO. The Lundberg family has been producing quality organic rice and rice products since 1937. Today, the third and fourth generations carry on the family heritage of using sustainable farming methods that produce quality products while improving the environment for generations to come.

CEO Grant Lundberg accepted the award on behalf of the entire family, and told the story of his familys farming roots, In 1937, my grandparents were farming in central Nebraska in the dustbowl and they experienced environmental catastrophe and that motivated them to move to California and instilled in them a sense that you need to take care of the soil for the future. In 1969 a future customer asked us to grow organic rice, and that started us on this journey, he said. For the Lundberg family and so many others attending OGS, that journey continues into an exciting and unfolding future.

By the numbers, OGS was attended by nearly 700 people, including 200 organic growers and 90 exhibitors on a sold-out tradeshow floor. The summit also included several social events providing networking opportunities and an exclusive screening of the award-winning short documentary The Last Harvest. Produced by Driscolls, the short film shines a light on ongoing labor shortages and immigration reform and was followed by a lively discussion on challenges and possible solutions from industry experts.

BetterBody Foods Launches the Only Oat Beverage on the Market that is Organic, Non-GMO & Gluten-Free – PRNewswire

Posted: at 12:45 pm

without comments

With no added sugar and completely soy and nut free, Oatsome is appealing to both the health-conscious and allergy-prone consumers. The new milk is not only deliciously drinkable and frothable, but you can use it anywhere you would use other dairy or non-dairy milks; including smoothies, coffee, lattes, in cereal and for baking.

BetterBody Foods (BBF) founder Stephen Richards has been following the rise in popularity of oat drinks in Europe and even tracked down and partnered with an Italian family who has been making this beverage for years.

"We're truly bringing the best Oat milk on the market to our customers," Richards said. "Only the finest ingredients go into Oatsome - the highest quality organic, non-GMO, gluten-free oats and no added sugar, gums, thickeners or stabilizers ever."

BetterBody Foods doesn't use carrageenan in their products, which is rare among alternative milks. In addition to taste, quality and versatility, Oastsome provides sustainability as a better alternative for the environment than dairy milk and especially almond milk. Almonds require over six times as much water to grow than oats.

Oatsome joins the brand's well-known product PBfit, the #1 selling peanut butter product on Amazon, along with other BBF pantry essentials such as organic chia seeds, organic coconut flour, avocado oil and avocado oil mayonnaise, to name but a few.

About BetterBody Foods:Founded by Stephen Richards, BetterBody Foods believes making better food choices contributes to a happy and healthy life. Committed to providing the best organic and natural foods for cooking, baking, health and wellness, the BBF team is constantly innovating and creating new healthy products. The 60 million dollar brand is creating household names such as their best-selling PBfit peanut butter powder and a range of products now available in major grocery retailers.

Inoculants Market Study 2019-2025: Expansion of the Livestock Industry in Asia-Pacific & South America Presents Lucrative Opportunities -…

Posted: at 12:45 pm

without comments

DUBLIN, Dec. 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The "Inoculants Market by Type (Agricultural Inoculants and Silage Inoculants), Microbe (Bacterial and Fungal), Crop Type (Oilseeds & Pulses, Cereals & Grains, Fruits & Vegetables, and Forage), and Region - Global Forecast to 2025" report has been added to's offering.

The Global Inoculants Market is Estimated to Reach US$ 808 Million in 2019 and is Projected to Account for US$ 1,207 Million by 2025, Recording a CAGR of 6.9%

In South America, countries such as Brazil and Argentina are projected to offer high growth prospects in the coming years, as they are ranked among the largest producers of soybean at a global level, driving the demand for inoculants in the region. Apart from this, the livestock industry is witnessing high growth in the Asia Pacific and South American regions due to the increase in demand for animal-based products, such as eggs, milk, and meat. This has led to a rise in the production and demand for livestock products, and thus, the price of feed grains has also increased. These factors are projected to increase the sales of silage inoculants in the coming years.

The cereal & grains segment in the inoculants market is estimated to account for the largest share in 2019.

Based on crop type, the cereals & grains segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the inoculants market in 2019. Cereals and grains include wheat, corn, barley, and rice crops. The US is a major wheat-producing country. According to the USDA, wheat ranks as the third majorly produced crop among the US field crops, following corn and soybean. Apart from this, Brazil is the largest producer of corn and is also ranked among the top producers at a global level. According to the US Department of Agriculture's World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, the country's corn exports was 35 million MT during 2018-2019, due to which it is the second-largest corn exporter at a global level, after the US.

The silage inoculants segment in the inoculants market is estimated to account for the largest share in 2019.

Based on type, the silage inoculants segment is estimated to account for the largest share in the inoculants market in 2019. The silage inoculants segment accounts for the largest share in the inoculants market. Sales of silage inoculants are on the rise due to the expansion of the livestock industry in emerging countries across regions. Urbanization has increased the sales of animal-based products, such as milk, eggs, and meat. With the rise in prices of feed grains, agricultural inoculants serve as a suitable alternative.

The fungal segment is projected to record the fastest growth during the forecast period.

Fungal inoculants help plants to absorb phosphorus and other nutrients for use. Mycorrhizal fungi live in plant roots and are well-known for their ability to provide phosphorus to plants. The demand for fungal microbes is projected to increase in the coming years, with the rise in organic farming practices at a global level.

The South American inoculants market is projected to witness significant growth.

The South American inoculants market is projected to account for the largest share by 2025. Countries such as Brazil and Argentina are the largest country-level markets in the Latin American region. Both these countries are the major producers of soybean. Agricultural inoculants are widely used for soybean crops, and hence, the consumption of inoculants is projected to increase in the next five years. It is one of the largest regions that have an adequate organic agricultural land area, due to which the demand for agricultural inoculants remains high in this region.

Plant-Based Meal Kits And Delivery Services Are On The Rise – Forbes

Posted: at 12:45 pm

without comments

Veestro is one of many a delivery services that make it easier to get more plant-based foods into ... [+] your diet without sacrificing taste, quality, or convenience.

Its no secret that the youth of America, on average, arent exactly cooking aficionados; according to a recent report by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), millennials (those born between 1981 and 1996) consume food outside the home around 30% more often than any other generation. The USDA study also found that millennials spend significantly less time on food preparation, presentation, and cleanup55 minutes less than Gen Xers (those born between 1965 and 1980)and spend, on average, 12 minutes less eating and drinking than Traditionalists (those born before 1946).

At the same time that millennials are eschewing spatulas and mixing bowls, they are also embracing plants. According to The Economist, fully a quarter of 25-to-34-year-old Americans say they are vegans or vegetarians. As for those millennials who eat some amount of meat, eggs or dairy, Mintel reports that almost one-third of them are trying to eat a more plant-based diet.

The results of these two trends? A remarkable rise in products and services that offer the promise of convenience without an animal product in sight.

An early entrant into the space, Purple Carrot, launched in 2014. Like Blue Apron and Plated, which were both founded two years prior, it too sells meal kitsessentially a subscription service where a company sends customers pre-portioned and sometimes partially-prepared food ingredients and recipes to prepare home cooked mealsbut they are entirely vegan. Since receiving a publicity boost from Mark Bittman, the American food journalist, author, and former columnist for the New York Times, who joined the company to develop and test recipes (as well as work to make packaging and sourcing more sustainable), Purple Carrot has gone on to service over 22,000 customers in 2018 and to generate $43 million in revenue. Earlier this year, it was acquired by Japan's largest meal kit and organic food delivery service Oisix ra daichi.

Hungryroot, which launched in 2015, takes a slightly different approach. It markets itself as a veggie-friendly (though not an exclusively plant-based company, one can opt into making the experience 100% vegan) food subscription service that offers ingredients consumers can mix and match together to their liking as part of suggested recipes. Just this past October, Hungryroot repositioned itself as a personalized online grocery service, drawing upon some of the features of popular e-grocers like plant-forward Thrive Market and vegan Mylk Guys, and is offering an assortment of products in its weekly deliveries from third-party brands including RightRice, Field Roast, Kite Hill, Yves, Beyond Meat and Banza.

But as Amanda Mull notes in The Atlantic, it still takes a chunk of time to unpack, cook,and clean up after a meal-kit meal, too. Enter meal delivery services.

Unlike meal kits, meal delivery services offer fully cooked meals that require little to no preparation other than heating them up.

A leader in the category is Veestro. Founded by sister-and-brother duo Monica Klausner and Mark Fachler who grew up in Costa Rica where they learned to appreciate the value of a home-cooked meal, the plant-based company delivers healthy, organic vegan meals that can be heated up straight away or refrigerated or frozen for later use. One reviewer noted that the meals taste good, that her personal favorites were the red curry, Thai chick'n stew, and mushroom risotto, and that she truly appreciated not having to think about preparing food or give in to greasy takeout. As of 2019, Veestro is profitable and growing fast. Its projected revenue for 2019 is nearly $9 million (a 53% increase from 2018) and the founders expect sales in 2020 to hit $20 million.

Hungry Earthling, a new vegan meal delivery service, also relies (mostly) on organic ingredients, and has received some positives reviews: One customer noted [b]ecause they are plant-based I wasn't sure if the meals would be filling but the portions are generous, taste surprisingly good and I always feel satisfied. While Hungry Earthling currently only delivers to California, Arizona and Nevada, it intends to expand across the country as it grows its customer base.

One downside of all of these services is that they can be pricey. The more you buy, the cheaper the meal kits and prepared meals get (less expensive than a night or two out on the town), but they can still be cost-prohibitive for many millennials, occasionally referred to as generation broke and who still eat cheap fast food on a regular basis. (The environmental impact of all that extra packaging is also an issue, but some have argued the benefitssuch as decreasing food wasteoutweigh the shipping and handling impacts.)

EMeals arguably represents a middle ground in terms of cost and convenience. The online meal planning service offers subscribers shopping lists from selected recipes, and recommends services that can deliver groceries or schedule them for pickup. They offer over 100 meal plans and one of them being a vegan meal plan, with new and unique recipes every week.

Perhaps more millennials would benefit from going to the grocery store and cooking scratch meals the old-fashioned way. Still, for those who can afford one of these plant-based meal kits or meal delivery services, it has never been easier to cut back on animal products. Given the connection between industrial animal agriculture and the climate crisis, poor public health and animal cruelty, I, as a card-carrying millennial, will happily raise my avocado toast to that.

Drive to push ‘Upcycling’ of food ingredients to promote a Circular Economy –

Posted: at 12:45 pm

without comments

The summit, organized by Ecovia Intelligence will provide an update on eco-labels, sustainable ingredients, and green packaging.

Here we highlight eight areas of discussion that the organisers will focus on;

1. Need for a circular economy. It is argued many of the negative impacts associated with the food industry could be resolved by shifting to a circular economy. Holly Bybee, director of business development, IDEO will discuss the role of regenerative agriculture, sourcing locally, and product design in a sustainable food industry. The challenges and opportunities in making the transition to a circular economy will be highlighted.

2. Closing packaging loops. The food industry, the largest user of single-use packaging, is under pressure to reduce its packaging impacts. Some of the technology provided by bio-based polymers, recyclable materials, and compostable packaging will be explored. Anthony Rossi, VP, global business development, Teracycle will explain how its Loop platform aims to make single-use packaging a thing of the past. Case studies will also be given of brands adopting innovative green packaging solutions.

3. Upcycling of food ingredients. In recent years, a flurry of start-ups are finding applications for discarded food (byproducts). The Planetarians is one such company, using defatted sunflower seeds to make plant proteins and protein flour. The companys CEO Aleh Manchuliantsau will discuss the challenges in setting up supply chains for waste ingredients and getting customers to try upcycled ingredients.

4. Opportunities with hemp ingredients. Chris Conrad, internationally recognized cannabis expert, will highlight the opportunities for hemp and cannabidiol (CBD) in food and beverage products. According to a survey by the National Restaurant Association, 76% of Americans see cannabis / CBD-infused drinks as the number one trend. Conrad will also give an update on the regulatory challenges when marketing CBD infused products.

5. Positive impacts of ethical sourcing. A growing number of companies are investing in ethical sourcing of their ingredients, however doing so brings many challenges.

Getting Help, and Giving Back – The New York Times

He wasnt getting fed the quality of food he really needed for his day-to-day survival, Ms. Lee said. Then one night were sitting on the porch and I hear preaching. Dacian and I walked seven blocks until we stumbled into a huge community dinner.

Pushing her sons stroller, Ms. Lee had happened upon the Freedom Gathering, a church-affiliated dinner that serves as many as 200 people every Thursday in a small vacant lot. Clothing and free to-go lunches are offered there as well.

Seven blocks is a long way to hear someone preaching, Ms. Lee said. And I never really heard it again. It led us to that dinner, which saved us in so many ways.

From the Freedom Gathering, Ms. Lee was referred to a pair of nearby food pantries: Hungers End, which provides groceries, clothing and hygiene products to more than 500 families a month, and Our Daily Bread, which serves meals to about 250 people a day, seven days a week. They are among the 200 food banks affiliated with Feeding America, a beneficiary agency of The New York Times Neediest Cases Fund.

Our Daily Breads self-serve pantry has provided Ms. Lee with essentials like diapers as well as coffee, canned soup and peanut butter. When fresh produce or organic macaroni and cheese comes through, Ms. Lee said, volunteers often set it aside for her. In 2018, Feeding Tampa Bay, part of Feeding Americas national network, began delivering organic food to Hungers End and other pantries in the Bradenton area. Twice a month, an outdoor pantry is assembled and opened to anyone in need. Ms. Lee returned from her most recent visit to the Hungers End fresh market with organic butter, coconut milk, mangoes, brussels sprouts and raspberries.

Because she cares for Dacian full time, money is tight. The $146 she receives in food stamps each month covers just one weeks groceries; she pays for another week out of her $700 monthly Social Security check. Utilities run about $300, leaving little for Ms. Lee to save or spend on herself.

Ms. Lee knew it was imperative to remove processed foods and refined sugars from her sons diet. Once his diet improved, Dacians symptoms subsided significantly and he started sleeping through the night for the first time in his life.
