As a consumer, how can you tell whether a product is truly organic? Today, as consumers become more aware and responsible about what they eat and drink, there is an increasing interest in, and consequently a rising demand for, organic products. Therefore, Organic certifications have been put in place to provide the consumer with confidence in the product they buy.
Lead Nepal on behalf of the farmers have facilitated the process of organic certification with leading organic certification institutes and currently is in the stage of an internal inspection process.
Lead Nepal has imparted workshops and on the job training on the stages of conversion to organic farming. Workshops on monitoring and evaluation on the conversion to organic farming were provided, as it is a core requirement for the successful output. Currently Lead Nepal is in the process of acquiring organic certification for Upper Mustang region and the region around Surkhet.
