THE CURRENT STATE OF FOOD PRODUCTION
As the planet’s population increases, industrial agriculture has become a widely used practice for supplying food for the masses. Industrially farmed food is ostensibly grown at a low cost, for mass consumption and not with the end consumer’s or the planet’s health in mind. Therefore the world’s soils are being degraded and desertified at an alarming rate and the nutritional value of the foods we eat are grossly depleted!
We simply cannot sustain the current 1% of land erosion per year due to industrial farming.
THE FUTURE WITHOUT CHANGE
With the current growth in population, it is anticipated we will need to double our food supply by 2050. However, Industrial agriculture is based on forcing our will on nature, typically through the use of harmful chemicals and synthetic inputs. Generally in the end nature will prevail, but it will be at the cost of many species including humans.
THE SOLUTION IS REGENERATIVE FARMING
Regeneratively farmed produce is the missing food category besides industrially and organically farmed food.
Farmers are transitioning to regeneration methods at a significant pace in the USA, Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. However, greater awareness about this important trend needs to be brought to consumers attention.
Organichain is positioning itself to be a market leader in educating the public about the benefits of regenerative agriculture, and why it’s important for everyone to support this movement at the point-of-sale.
BENEFITS OF REGENERATIVE FARMING
- Increased food nutrient density through improved soil health and absence of harmful chemicals (i.e. pesticides, herbicides and fungicides)
- Improved soil health through enhanced soil organic carbon.
- Increased presence and diversity of beneficial soil microbes stimulating soil and environment biodiversity
- Increased crop yields that produce high quality, better tasting food
- Improved crop resilience to climactic extremes, including flooding and drought due to enhanced water cycling capacity
- A powerful climate change solution given reduced carbon emissions and increased sequestration of carbon within the soil
- Improved profitability for farmers over time as risk is reduced and natural processes are enhanced, meaning external input costs are reduced significantly
- Quadruple bottomline outcomes – people, planet, profit and purpose
