Comments: Organic Luxury


It seems to me that organic production methods are (should be?) a different issue to "leftist food politics". At least, I'm generally in favour of organic methods on ecological grounds, no matter who is doing it. (I'm gently left-leaning but basically politics-blind.) So another way of phrasing the change you've noticed might be that leftist food politics has made organic production methods a big enough issue to be taken up by big business. I guess I'm suggesting that the very fact that it _can_ be big business means 'being organic' isn't a core social issue in the way that supporting small-scale local production is. It's only when it's treated as one that it becomes a "trojan horse".

Thank you for the info!
