Is organic food more expensive than non organic food?

    Yes, most organic food is more expensive than conventional food mainly because it costs more to produce organic food. The supply of organic food is also less than conventional food. In addition to this, “post-harvest handling of relatively small quantities of organic foods results in higher costs because of the mandatory segregation of organic and conventional produce, especially for processing and transportation.” Other factors that contribute to the high price of organic foods include taking into consideration: environmental protection plans, higher standards for animal welfare and avoidance of health risks.
