Organic Action Plan for Denmark

Organic products have derived from biodynamic idealism in small health food stores to a natural and ordinary shopping choice in supermarkets. This development did not come out of the blue. It is the result of cooperation between farsighted farmers, organisations and politicians that has turned Denmark into the world’s leading country for organics. We will continue to strive for this ambitious goal. With a new Organic Action Plan for Denmark, the Danish government will further develop and enlarge the organic production. Our aim is to double the organically cultivated area by 2020 from the 2007 level. We need to engage all relevant actors in Denmark to achieve this ambitious goal. The government wants the public sector to lead the way. Therefore, we speed up the transition from conventional to organic production on publicly owned land and we continue our efforts to support public kitchens to go organic. As a result more than 800,000 people will benefit from healthy, organic meals served every day in canteens, hospitals and nurseries. Furthermore, we strengthen the knowledge of organic food and organic production in primary schools and in agricultural education. We also focus on research in new organic solutions and on creating space for new experiments. And we invest in new export drivers and information to increase the sales of Danish organics nationally and globally.
