The Danish Government has declared that will turn agriculture in this country in sustainable and organic agriculture. Thus, Denmark will become the first country on our planet to be completely organic.What is interesting is that Denmark is already on the list of top countries with organic products, but they’re having this practice in another level now. That is, the US government has invested more than 50 million euros last year in order to convert itself into a completely organic country. According to many experts, this is a very bold plan, but because the country and focuses on the production of organic foods, the plan seems realistic.
Denmark has always been ahead of other countries when it comes to organic food. organic brand of their nation is 25 years old and among the first worldwide. It is also good to know that the export of organic food produced in Denmark has doubled eight years ago.
To carry out this ambitious plan, the authorities will be applied in two ways. First, they will convert conventional farming land in a healthier organic farming. Secondly, they will support the demand for organic, all-natural products.
The main objective is to increase agricultural land where organic techniques are practiced by 100% over the next four years. The official document was presented this plan contains 67 points and was prepared by a team of scientists and experts in this field.
Of course, in the first stage of land owned by the Danish government it will be cultivated with the help of biodynamic and organic techniques. At the same time, the authorities provide incentives and support to private owners who are working and managing money in this growing sector in order to reach new methods, ideas and technologies. This project not only focuses on vegetables and fruits, livestock will be affected too, especially pigs.
But who is going to implement these changes? It seems that the ministry, all regions in Denmark and even the cities will work together to achieve this goal. One of the first objectives is to make 60% of organic food used by the public. Schools, hospitals and public canteens will have to meet at least 60% of organic food.
