The five day event which is conceived by Madhavi and Nirupa, mothers who upon search for Organic Food for the wellness of the family and found couple of year back that awareness was not much for the same. Then they embarked on organising such exhibitions to create more awareness for the Organic and Natural products. They have been organising such exhibitions for the past couple of years. Now they plan to take these events to all over two Telugu states.
It is our mission. It is not a profit venture for us. This is our way of giving back to society by spreading benefits of going natural, informed Madhavi. We have been doing it as our passion, he informed.
Interacting with media Madhavi said, the exhibition has 50 stalls and six experts addressing sessions of public interest every day at 3pm for next five days. Entry is free all are invited and it is open from 10am to 8pm.
Speaking further answering a question from the media, Madhavi said why organic produce are so expensive. They are expensive because time is money. They take more time to produce crops because they don’t use chemicals and growth hormones unlike conventional farming. Another factor is organic food supply is limited as compared to demand. That is why they are sold at higher price. If more and more people go organic more and more farmers will get into organic farming, she added.
Organic products are pricey because when they don’t use chemicals, they need to spend more on labour. Demand overwhelms supply. Organice farmers use crop follow crop rotation. So they cannot produce in large quantities. Even they need to put in lot of efforts to get Organic Certification. These are some of the reasons why Organic Products are pricey, informed Madhavi.
Since there is a craze for organic products lot of people are claiming to be organic. How to know whether a particular product is Organic or not? You must check certificates and also try samples. See the background of the individual or organization promoting such produce. Go online and find out their credentials on the Google informed G.

In this light of background, BigMarketeer, a Hyderabad based Organic Food Events specialist is organising “Organic & Millets Expo & Bazar’.
Looking at the craze people without any knowledge are going and buying organic food products randomly. They need to be educated. They are getting confused with so much jargon.
