With over 300 women entrepreneurs, an organic festival in the city aims to empower women by increasing their revenue base, as well as educate consumers about benefits.
As the fast-paced life of the city takes over our lives, many people have woken up to the damage easily available, mass grown food products can have on our health and living. From artificially sweetened fruits to pesticide-laden vegetables, health conscious Mumbaikars are fast moving towards organic food products, hoping to consume only chemical-free foodstuff.
And as we inch towards living life in a natural way with food, the city is hosting its very first organic festival. And while the pure-grown food is a draw enough, the highlight of the festival is its all-female entrepreneur line up. Established in 2015, Women of India Organic Festival is organised by the Union ministry of women & child development, giving an impetus to businesswomen and cultivators in the organic field.
