|Organic and Bio-Dynamic production is considered to have enormous international growth potential.
Demand is being fuelled by greater consumer awareness on issues ranging from health and nutrition to food safety, labelling and genetically modified organisms.
The expansion in the number of certified Organic and Bio-Dynamic producers is reflected in the Mildura Region, but the local industry remains small.
Produce grown organically or bio-dynamically includes wine, table and dried grapes, citrus, avocados, stone fruits, almonds and vegetables.
Dry growing conditions are regarded as a considerable advantage, reducing the incidence of crop disease.
A not-for-profit venture, Organics on Eleventh, was opened in Mildura in 2002. Modelled on a food co-operative, the venture promotes and retails organic produce grown in the region.
