Initiative to promote organic products

Some 16 farmers under a city based organisation, Rythu Mitra, came together to sell their organic produce under a first-of-its-kind initiative of Organic Farmers Market organised by Women in Society through Engagement (WISE), a newly formed womens wing of the Vizagapatam Chambers of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) here on Sunday. The initiative saw an overwhelming response from visitors.

From vegetables and fruits to a variety of flavoured honey and products for home gardening assistance, the organic market came as a one-stop-solution for health conscious people who seek to eliminate the presence of pesticides from the food chain by going organic.
