The future growth of the organic sector will benefit from a close private-public cooperation, the Danish Food and Farming Minister Rasmus Prehn said today.
At the opening ceremony for this year’s Nordic Organic Food Fair (which runs today and tomorrow at MalmöMässan), the Minister said: It is a great honour for me to be here to officially open this years Nordic Organic Food Fair, and to see so many people in Malmö.It shows there is a great interest in organic products. I’m especially pleased to see both manufacturers and retailers, because the development of the organic sector depends on a close cooperation between between you and the rest of the private sector, and us in the public sector. Together we can drive forward the way to produce sustainable organic products for consumers to enjoy.”
