Can anyone sell organic food?

To answer this question one has to think about all the implications in actually delivering organic food to the final consumer. For starters, if you are to become a direct seller (with no intermediaries) you must be a farmer who follows strict regulations governing organic food. No company or farm can claim to sell organic foods unless they meet these high standards.

Even though organic food has significantly grown in demand over the years, there are still some situations that make it especially difficult to even source organic products.

Throughout history of farming, the lands in the United States have been treated with chemical pesticides that affect the quality of crops and of the soil. This makes soil that has not been treated with artificial pesticides not easy to find. This is part of the reason why organic food is more expensive in comparison to non-organic. Other factors to consider are the strict regulations that the government imposes to establish that a product is organic. A farmer that grows only organic crops has to hire people to make sure that the product meets regulatory standards.  Government regulations involve yielding, transport, processing, and storage. All these must meet required standards. This obviously represents higher costs of production, which eventually is passed on to the final consumer.

However, as demand for organic grows, this might represent lowering of prices to those that will be able to compete against non-organic produce. 

One of the greatest buyers of organic food is restaurants. These businesses are always on the lookout for organic food in the belief that organic products have a better taste.
