Organic Agriculture Procedure and Certification Formalised

AKP Phnom Penh, April 28, 2020 —

Procedure and national certification logo for Cambodia’s organic agriculture have been formalised to promote confidence among farmers toward more exports of the healthy products.

The update was shared in a recent statement from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.

Signed by the minister, the move is expected to promote organic agricultural products among Cambodian farmers to meet the amount of produce and the quality for exports to international markets.

According to the statement, the organic agricultural products include fruit, vegetable, and food crops, and any of them locally grown meeting the defined standard will be certified for exports.

The effort is not only responsive to the current demand for health and quality products globally, but also to ensure sustainable agriculture in Cambodia.
