Summary

This report was presented at the UK Organic Research 2002 Conference. Organic conversion can help maintain property and lifestyle. But organic is not always local. Based on long-term contacts this poster notes market, global and policy implications of an American family farm which converted to organic herbs with a multinational partner. Is the family’s affiliation with corporate macro-actors the happy human face of globalisation? Or does it support Pollan’s (2001) warning that an ‘organic-industrial complex’ will dominate organic movements in the US, UK and world-wide?
