Definition of Organic Food
There are lot of definitions to Organic Food. According to Britanica -“Organic food, fresh or processed food produced by organic farming methods. Organic food is grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, such as human-made pesticides and fertilizers, and does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Organic foods include fresh produce, meats, and dairy products as well as processed foods such as crackers, drinks, and frozen meals. The market for organic food has grown significantly since the late 20th century, becoming a multibillion dollar industry with distinct production, processing, distribution, and retail systems.” Let’s see what is the significance of organic food and how come organic term came to existence.
I live in Sri Lanka which considered as a developing country that has more than 60,000 evolution history from Balangoda Man. The archeological studies of Balangoda Man showed what he had eaten during his time. From our ancestors we did follow organic farming methods knowingly or unknowingly. We has great organic food culture untill 1985 or so. I remember my childhood where no one use synthetic fertilizer or any sort of industrial chemicals. Because those were not available for us. We only know food and never knew what is organic or inorganic. We ate good food even our country has been considered as developing country. We go our eatables and we gave extra to those who need. We share our produce among surrounding communities. There were no market for our fruits or vegetables as everyone has their own stocks.
However, after our country opened our market to the global, all the shit practices came to the country with distractive chemicals that were not good for a pig or cow. The multinational companies who produces chemical and fertilizers spent billions of dollars to destroy our food culture and prepared their agendas with government officials to made their policies to made their agenda legalize. That was the brief history of my 44 years history of my country.
