As all this happens, I just read two different messages on SANET sayin that
there is no market for organics in Mexico and that people would be too poor
to buy them anyway. Discouraging things are being said about export. This
may seem odd, but a number of US organic products (eg. from Colorado) are
available in the supermarkets here. Expensive--but they sell.
There is a small but rapidly growing organic market in Mexico and, though
they may not say so if you asked them in a survey, even poor people are
willing to pay a little more for quality organic food. It's true because
we see it happen every day.
Things aren't always what they seem.
