Ken Cook: Expand Organics, but Do It Right

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Last summer, EWG President Ken Cook dropped in on the Kickapoo Country Fair held by Organic Valley - a farmer-owned cooperative of more than 1,300 organic family farmers nationwide – in LaFarge, Wisc.

There he was interviewed by Dorothee Royal-Hedinger, the host, web video producer and blogger for OrganicNation.TV website.

She asked Ken to talk about the anxiety that some consumers and activists feel about the trend of big corporations taking over organic brands and the tension between making organic food affordable and maintaining the standards on which organics were founded. OrganicNation.TV posted the interview the other day, and here’s what Ken had to say.
