Global Market Demand for Premium Organic Foods Continues

Organa Gardens International Inc., has a vertical hydroponic farming system known as OGS-E. The OGS-E will virtually eliminate current problems like transportation costs, pollution and product spoilage while enabling the grower/farmer to realize the same crop yield using between one-fifth to one-tenth the land currently needed depending on the crop being grown. The fully automated system recycles and reuses 95% of the water used while requiring a negligible amount of energy to run. The system uses a specially developed nutrient fertilizer which enables it to produce a higher quality of fruits and vegetables.

In a March 2009 report by Global Business Insights, "The organic food and drinks market grew rapidly over the first part of the decade with sales in the US and the nine largest European markets reaching $46 billion in 2007. Positive growth is expected to continue in 2009 as the demand for organic food and drinks is proving to be resilient in a number of key markets and product sectors due to a combination of key factors. Firstly, heavy purchasers of organics typically have significantly higher than average disposable incomes and have so far been largely unaffected by the global downturn. Secondly, the price differential between many organic and regular products has contracted steadily in recent years and this has increased consumer reluctance to revert to cheaper non-organic alternatives."

More and more people are turning to organic food as a more reliable and safer way to feed themselves and their family. Artificial ingredients used to make a product low fat or low in calories are starting to be questioned. Strange-sounding ingredients are a concern for consumers. Most consumers now recognize the fact that non-organic foods can contain pesticides, chemical fertilizers and herbicides. Food scares such as BSE and more recently Avian Flu have not only had a detrimental effect on various industries, but also awakened consumer interest in where their food actually comes from. Consumers are starting to question the trust and loyalty they have placed in the food and drinks industry to date.

Organa is in the process of bringing its OGS-E into commercial production and feels its gardening technology is the answer for the concerned consumer. Company president Christopher Scheive states, "Organa's reinventing the food wheel will enable consumers to grow organic goods without the risks of pesticides, crop pests, and soil borne diseases while reaping the rewards of higher yields and seasonal extension of crop growth."
