Jamaica's future may be organic

During the opening session of a two-day workshop on business opportunities in the European natural and organic products market held in New Kingston, Jamaica, on October 15, Head of the Jamaican Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries' Agro-Investment Corporation, Dr. David Lowe stressed that organic farming may grow significantly in Jamaica in the next few years. "There is scope for the development and growth of natural and organic agriculture in Jamaica, through a national policy framework for the sector" Lowe said. According to Lowe, there is need in Jamaica to further refine previous strategies and implementation plans for organic and natural agriculture, by reviewing existing policies and current standards, as well as regulation for branding and labelling of organic produce for domestic and international trade.
