Why is Organic Food More Expensive?

grown more than the normally available food in the shops. There are many reasons
for this increase in price and can be easily explained by focusing on certain important
factors.

The production of these types of foods or products is very limited and thus does not
satiate the demand. In addition, the total cost involved in the production process of
organic foods are also higher due to greater labor inputs on small and less quantity or
output units. After the initial process of harvesting, processing, transportation and
marketing of comparatively small or large volume of organic food ultimately results in
comparatively higher price of the final food item.

This clearly indicates that due to the less amount of organically food grown, the
demand and the cost in the market are divided over a final small quantity of output
produced by these farms. Besides this, many of these food products are not
chemically enhanced and their growth is not hormone induced. They take a longer
amount of time (compared to the typical food products available in the market) to
actually grow and become worthy of being sold. Ultimately their growth cycle is
larger and their costs are divided over a smaller number of outputs.

for organic food and its products, sincere steps have been taken by the government.
Steps have been implemented and in many places strategy to execute new
methodologies and technological innovations are in already in process to reduce the
costs required to produce, process, distribute, and market the organic products.

food are:


All these hidden factors have influenced the price of the organic food products and
resulted in making them rate higher than their traditional counterparts.
