Organic, Fair Trade Products Make Waves At Berlin's International Green Week

January 24, 2011: 11:42 AM EST

Berlin’s International Green Week fair had organic food stalls for the second year and fair trade food products for the first time. German consumers have been attracted to the premium-priced organic food partly by the recent scandal in the country over dioxin found in animal feed, but cynics argue that organic food is expensive and not always credible, and rather misses the point if flown to market. Fair trade producers also displayed their products and called on consumers to support farming systems that are fair for workers, farm owners, and the environment.
