Organic Market “ORANGE DAY” (english information)


Farmers’ Organic Market “ORANGE DAY” @ Aoyama

January 23 (Fri) – 24 (Sat), 2009 11:00 -16:00 at United Nations University (UNU) Forecourt

Today we are faced with a multitude of problems related to foodstuffs.

There are safety issues with chemical fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides and genetically modified products finding their way into our diet. There are also concerns regarding the environmental impact of importing food from abroad and virtual-water, and so on.
That said, the diffusion rate of organic foodstuffs in Japan is extremely low, presently accounting for a mere 1% of fresh fruit and vegetables. The United Nations University (UNU) in Aoyama can be the departure point for the first step in this journey. We ask your cooperation in making this dream a reality.
