In January 2016, India’s least populated state, Sikkim, was officially declared fully organic. All 75,000 hectares of farmland in Sikkim are now free of chemical fertilisers and pesticides. In Part 1, we take a look at how Sikkim achieved this milestone.

This was very informative! Also love the concept of the Food radio project.
Also have a question- In your research and conversations with so many people about the Sikkim organic project, have you come across anyone who is specifically working on setting up a cold storage chain? This remains a problem not only in organic farming, but otherwise too.
Excellent Podcast..! It was really informative..I am a Logistics Guy based in India interested in trading in middle ease as well as marketing of organic products in Western countries like Europe / US. If you got any leads or contacts or you think I can get in touch with the farmers for marketing their products I will be interested. Looking forward to getting in touch with you. Best Regards Ananth
