What is Organic Food?
In Singapore, there has been increasing demand
in organic products in the recent years although organic
products are normally higher in prices relative to
non-organic products. It is our observations and
experiences that elderly and cancer patients are most
interested and regularly consumes organic products.
There are many organic products being sold in
Singapore. From large wholesale market at Pasir Panjang, to
small, specialized organic stores in shopping malls. The
purveyors of organic products include online organic product
stores and organic products corners at large supermarkets such
as NTUC. Consumers are spoilt for choices.
In years to come, we believe prices of organic
products will be more competitive as more suppliers enter the
organic products arena. The emergence of online organic
products store with low overhead and possible wider range will
definitely benefit the Singapore organic product consumers.
Online organic product stores operate on long tail concept,
with JIT (Just in Time) delivery will see organic product
manufacturer enjoying better prices and fresher products.
Buy Only Certified Organic
It is our observation that some organic
products that are being sold in Singapore market are self
proclaimed. We advised consumers not to be taken in by products
with wordings such as “organic”, “made with organic
ingredients” or “organically grown“. Such products are not
certified organic by independent certification body and
therefore cannot be considered or consumed as organic
To ensure that your money is not wasted, it is
always advisable to buy certified organic products: Certified
organic products always carry on the product labels. Look out
for logos of organic certification body and make sure you see
such logos: USDA certified.
If the organic product does not carry logo of
and certification body, then it cannot be considered as organic
products. Therefore, always look out for certified organic
products and logo of organic certification bodies when
purchasing organic products in Singapore.
Always buy from reliable organic products
suppliers and beware of self proclaimed organic products which
are organic products until the self proclaimed organic products
are weeded out.
