On Tuesday, the Agricultural Marketing department unveiled the first-of-its-kind ‘organic market’, named ‘Sufal Bangla Green’ at New Town. The organic market will act as a platform for selling seasonal vegetables and fruits and various other necessary ingredients that are produced through organic farming.
A senior official of the department said: “The developed countries in the world have shifted to organic farming amid complaints of pesticide use in agriculture which is detrimental to health. The people of the state too would love organic products if they are sanguine of the genuineness. Vegetables, fruits and various other items such as rice, pulses, spices, oil, ghee, honey etc. produced through an organic method will be sold in the hub.”
