After the USDA dropped plan for a national organic promotion program, a private organization has picked up the baton and is pushing forward:
“In an e-mail to The Packer, Batcha said the voluntary program will operate outside of the oversight of the USDA. The USDA expressly forbids disparaging other commodities by the agency’s promotion boards, and Batcha said the voluntary program also will focus on the positive attributes of organic products, not negative messages about non-organic food.”
P.S. Organic customers remain in demand by consumers. If you sell organics, get them on Walmart’s shelves! Contact our team today to set up a consultation with one of our Walmart experts.
