What's ahead for organic food? – Agweek

Though the U.S. organic industry is getting a short-term boost from the coronavirus pandemic, the outbreak also creates both major challenges for the coming year and potential long-term gain, according to a new report.
The “Mercaris Special Report: 2020 COVID-19, U.S. Organic Commodity Market & Risks Outlook” was released April 15 by Ryan Koory, director of economics for Mercaris, which provides analysis and information on the organic market. Key findings of the report were presented online and available to the news media.
“COVID-19 is a social, political and economic event without a modern parallel,” Kerry said. “Monitoring risks, long-term sustainability planning and understanding just much uncertainty remains are all crucial for navigating the year to come.”
For now, the pandemic has increased interest in organic foods, in part because the closure of restaurants has led to more shopping at grocery stores where organic is sold, Koory said.
But by all accounts, the pandemic will hurt the U.S. enonomy and limit what consumers can spend. That’s particularly ominous for organic, he said.

“Organic is a premium good,” or one that consumers will pay extra to buy. When times are tough economically, sales of premium goods inevitably fall, Koory said.
There’s too much uncertainty to predict exactly how consumer demand for organic ultimately will be affected. But with consumers going to restaurants less and grocery stores more often, “This does create the opportunity near-term to create a long-term consumer shift (in food purchases) into a positive for the organic food industry if organic foods can put themselves more squarely in front of consumers, ” Koory said.
Other key takeaways from the report:

Next 7 Organic Farm focuses on sustainability for future generations – Farm and Dairy

Get 4 Weeks of Farm and Dairy Home Delivered
Next 7 Organic Farm, in Cadiz, Ohio, has been known by several different names over the years. It was the Johnson Homestead when Benjamin and Drusilla Perrin Johnson founded it in 1805. Since then, it has been passed down through seven generations — more recently, it was known as Her Bold Farm.
Now, Holly and Isaac Wiegmann are farming there under its current name. Holly is the seventh generation of her family on the 188-acre farm, and Isaac is in the seventh generation of farmers from his family’s land in West Virginia. They are working to keep the farm sustainable for the next seven generations after them.
“Any decision that you make, you should look at the effect of that decision for seven generations ahead in the future, to ensure that there’s a sustainable supply of what it is that you need and what it is that you’re taking,” Isaac said.
Holly’s parents moved back to the farm in the 1970s, as newlyweds, and as back-to-landers. She was born on the farm and spent the first few years of her life there, then moved to California when her parents divorced. But she still visited the farm with her dad every year or so.
“It never really left us,” she explained.
In her 20s, she worked in a restaurant in Hawaii and learned more about food and local ingredients from that perspective. Later on, she owned a restaurant in New York, went to college and worked as a teacher. But in her early 30s, her teaching job dissolved. Around the same time, her dad finally moved back to the farm again.
“And I was like, you know what, this is my opportunity to move back to the farm — if anytime, this is it,” she said. “I didn’t know if it would be temporary or long term. But I just I fell in love with farming.”
About four years later, she met Isaac. Isaac is from West Virginia, and also is the seventh generation of farmers in his family. His dad, Mark Wiegmann, studied horticulture at West Virginia University and started his own greenhouse business on the family land.
“So, I was just around plants and horticulture all of my life and sponged it up,” Isaac said. After high school, he spent time walking the Appalachian Trail, then went to Hocking College to study natural resources. He liked the idea of being self-sufficient, and left college at 21 to move back to his parents’ place and work on growing vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit trees.
He eventually moved to a rental farm in southern Ohio. A friend who interned on Holly’s farm introduced the two of them. Holly and Isaac had a lot in common, including farming and a mutual interest in anthropology. They later got married and are now raising their two children, Abhiram, 5, and Joan, 2, on the farm.
Now, the farm includes certified organic vegetables and hemp, and pastured cattle, pigs and chickens, among other things. Some of their practices include rotational grazing and crop rotations. They also believe considering how Indigenous cultures used the land can help with making sustainable choices.
Up until 2020, Holly took much of what the farm sells to farmers markets in Pittsburgh. She found those were more lucrative than some of the closer markets, because there were more customers there who were health conscious and had money to support local farmers.
Then, Joan was born in March of 2020. Around the same time, the COVID-19 pandemic hit Ohio. It was a good time to reevaluate whether markets would be a good option for the coming season.
In Wheeling, West Virginia, Grow Ohio Valley, a nonprofit focused on building a local food system, opened its Public Market not long before that. The Wiegmanns connected with the nonprofit and started selling through the market and through Grow Ohio Valley’s CSA. They also sell to some local chefs. It’s all been enough to allow both of them to stay on the farm full time.
The hemp is a recent addition. The Wiegmanns started growing hemp in 2020, the first year it was legal in Ohio. They got licenses in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, working with Isaac’s family in those states, as well as Ohio. Isaac was interested in the cannabis industry for a long time, and he spent time learning about the industry in other states over the years.
“I want to work with this plant. It’s such a great opportunity. But I don’t want to go live on some rocky hillsides in Colorado,” Isaac said. “By the time the hemp permits came on board in Ohio … I was ready to roll.”
They process the hemp at Isaac’s parents’ farm in Pennsylvania. The processing regulations in that state are easier for them to work with, and since they got the processing license there, they can process it there and then sell it in Ohio. That also helped them avoid the processing bottleneck that a lot of hemp growers struggled with in the first year.
“We’ve always tried to strive to eliminate the middleman,” Holly said. They both value having direct relationships with their customers, who are sometimes also their neighbors.
The first year, they grew about two acres of hemp in total. It was a busy year, and they relied on a lot of volunteer help to get the crop harvested. Isaac’s focus is on what he calls the “craft flower” side of hemp, which he compares to the craft brewery industry. Growing hemp in that way is very labor intensive.
They haven’t grown at that scale since then. That’s mainly because the cost of processing that much is prohibitive for now. But they are continuing to grow hemp clones to sell to other growers at their farm, and in West Virginia with Isaac’s father, Mark Wiegmann.
They bought an additional 10 acres of land about a mile down the road from the rest of the farm. That’s the main site for the hemp farm these days. On an April day, Isaac had the plants growing in a small greenhouse next to a barn, and inside the barn. He plans to add greenhouses behind the barn, as well.
Some of the Wiegmanns’ goals for the farm are focused on outreach. They set up a couple of campsites on the farm, and were able make some extra money last year renting those out. They are working on getting a farmhouse on the other property ready as a vacation rental, as well. They are also planning to open up the farm more for tours.
“We have a beautiful place in the world,” Isaac said. “Just that exposure to nature, you know, is huge for me, and sharing that with people is definitely a passion of mine.”
That includes the hemp side of the farm. There’s still a stigma around anything in the cannabis industry, and that includes hemp, Isaac said. So, he wants to invite people out for hemp farm tours and tell them more about the history of the plant and how he grows hemp on the farm.
“I’m excited about being able to open it up, and normalize it,” Isaac said.

Organic Produce Summit announces keynote speaker | Produce News – The Produce News

Produce News Facebook  Produce News Twitter  Produce News LinkedIn  Produce News Instagram
Every year, more than eight million tons of plastic waste escapes into the world’s oceans, the equivalent of setting five garbage bags full of trash on every foot of coastline around the globe. What if there was a platform to stop ocean plastic and at the same time help alleviate poverty through a global recycling ecosystem?
That is the ambitious goal of Plastic Bank and its founder David Katz, who will offer a keynote presentation at OPS 2022, Empowering the World to Stop Ocean Plastic.
Katz will deliver a TedTalk style presentation on how Plastic Bank and the world’s most progressive companies are stewarding the collection of ocean-bound plastic waste and empowering communities to thrive. Plastic Bank allows people living in poverty to collect plastic and trade it in for material goods such as school tuition, medical insurance, internet access, and cooking fuel. The recycled plastic is reborn as Social Plastic feedstock and used in the production of products and packaging — thus helping create new life for old plastic.
As the founder and CEO of Plastic Bank, Katz has developed a global network of over 500 collection communities with more than 30,000 members that are transcending poverty by saving the ocean from plastic. Under his leadership, Katz has helped guide global partners like SC Johnson, Henkel, CooperVision, and more to stop billions of plastic bottles before they reach the ocean.
OPS 2022 is a two-day event specifically designed to bring together organic fresh produce growers, shippers, and processors with retail and buying organizations from across North America. The sixth annual event will be held July 13-14 at the Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, CA.
“We continue to learn about the small amount of plastic that is actually recycled across the globe and how much plastic winds up in the world’s oceans,” said Susan Canales, President of the Organic Produce Summit. “The work of Plastic Bank is helping to stop ocean plastic while reducing poverty by enabling the exchange of waste plastic for money, goods, and services. OPS attendees will learn about David’s work across the globe and how we can reduce our need for virgin plastic while creating lasting environmental, social, and economic impact.”
Katz’s humanitarian work has earned him international recognition, and he has been featured in hundreds of news and investigative articles, including BBC, CNN, Time Magazine, Forbes, Fast Company, Business Week, and National Geographic.
Katz’s keynote presentation is the second keynote announced for OPS 2022. John Ruane, senior vice president and chief omnichannel merchandising officer for The GIANT Company, will discuss The Growth of Omnichannel Merchandising That’s Driving Retail Sales and how consumers will spend more and become more loyal to a brand across all commerce channels with an effective omnichannel merchandising and marketing program.
In addition to the pair of keynote presentations, a series of educational sessions at OPS 2022 will focus on sustainability, the growing importance of CEA (controlled environment agriculture), regenerative organic agriculture, branded vs. private label organic offerings, and organics in an era of inflation and consumer purchasing behavior.
OPS 2022 will also include a selection of field tours for qualified retailers and buyers, a gala opening night reception, and a sold-out trade show floor featuring over 150 producers and processors of organic fresh produce from across North America and the globe.
Registration to attend OPS 2022 is available at www.organicproducesummit.com.

Lavazza Introduces Organic RTD Cold Brew Cans – CSPDailyNews.com

Search CSP Daily News
NEW YORK — Family-owned Italian coffee company Lavazza just launched organic ready-to-drink (RTD) cans of cold brew coffee in four flavors:
As the popularity of cold brew continues to rise and coffee drinkers look for easy-yet-elevated coffee options that suit a grab-and-go lifestyle, the new cans offer another way to enjoy the popular beverage in both dairy and non-dairy options, the company said.
Each can offers premium flavor profiles, from fruity aromas to tastes of nutty, creamy chocolate, helping to elevate a category that traditionally focuses on the inclusion of dairy products and sweeter profiles, Lavazza said. The company added that its RTD cold brew is the only one of its kind to be made with USDA Certified Organic, Rainforest Alliance Certified, 100% Arabica coffee.
Premium, organic, RTD coffee is growing at a rate nearly 39% faster than packaged coffee, Lavazza said, citing Nielsen data.
“This is due in part to younger, American coffee drinkers’ preference for cold and iced coffees, which makes this market one of the most dynamic,” said Davide Riboni, CEO of New York-based Lavazza US. “We’re always thinking about what’s next for coffee drinkers and are confident that our new ready-to-drink cold brew will attract a new class of coffee connoisseurs who value premium taste and quality.”
The new RTD cans, selling for a suggested $3.49, feature distinctive imagery, Lavazza said, transporting consumers to four Italian cities and regions. Classic Cold Brew is meant to recall a stroll along the canals of Venice, according to the company. Nitro Cold Brew is reminiscent of waves crashing against the walls of Capri’s Blue Grotto. Cappuccino Cold Brew with Milk, featuring a sweet, creamy taste of milk with a cocoa aroma, channels Tuscany’s majestic Cypress landscape. Finally, the bustling streets of Milan come alive with the balance of smooth, creamy oat milk and the sweet, chocolaty aroma of espresso in Double Shot Cold Brew with Oat Milk.
For more than 125 years, Lavazza has pursued a company vision based on passion for work, the product and the land in which it operates. These values have been ingrained in Lavazza’s DNA since its foundation in 1895 and upheld by four generations of entrepreneurs since then.
