15 October 2016 Current Affairs: The Minister of Women & Child Development, Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi has inaugurated the ‘Women of India Festival 2016’ of organic products by women at New Delhi.
The Festival to be held from October 14-23.
This initiative is a move to benefit women entrepreneurs, and also actively promote organic food and products. The Women of India Festival is intended to highlight the health and environmental advantages of organic goods, provide a platform for women engaged in this economy and encourage the development of sustainable and easily accessible sales outlets for organic producers from remote areas.
Organic foods have been proven to contain more vitamins, minerals and nutrients than similar foods produced with chemical fertilizers, pesticides and preservatives. Organic farming relies on techniques such as crop rotation, green manure, compost, and natural methods of pest control. Children are particularly vulnerable to the harmful effects of pesticide exposure.
