The term “organic” refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. While regulations vary from country to country, organic crops in the U.S. must be grown without using synthetic herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers, or bioengineered genes (GMOs).
Most terminal illnesses devastating the American society could be a result of consuming products grown with synthetic fertilizers and inorganic farm inputs.
Mr. Wisdom King Adukpo, CEO of Tiwala Markt Company LLC, is set to revolutionize the organic food industry. His company plans to set up huge out grower schemes in parts of Africa, taking advantage of arable organic lands and affordable labor in the continent.
“As Africans, we can’t shy away from some of the advantages we have back home. We have the land, we have the population willing to help. With fair-trade arrangements in place, Africa provides one of the cheapest man labor anywhere in the world. The cost of living is relatively low compared to the States, making it economical to offshore the large part of our organic farms in Africa to reduce production cost and make it more affordable for the consumer. Tiwala is duly registered in all these countries so it makes sense to take advantage of the opportunities in Africa to assist the U.S. in a mutually beneficial arrangement,” he stated.
