Organic Food Trend Takes Root In UAE, Farm-To-Consumer Stores Emerging

April 14, 2010: 02:15 AM EST
Organic food has been gaining in popularity in the United Arab Emirates and recently a new innovation appeared with The Naswa Organic Farm that sells its produce through its own store. The farm produces 65 vegetables and herbs that are delivered each morning to the store and the small volumes mean goods are usually sold the same day. Local officials claim that organic standards in the UAE are more exacting than those in Europe and the farm was certified by the Ministry of Environment and Water after it has passed necessary inspection of its soil and produce.
