Diana Callear on Organic Certified Produce

Diana Callear delighted us with interesting knowledge on Organic Certified Produce

Wednesday, 11 June 2014

Diana Callear is an agricultural economist who worked for several years for southern African governments on rural development, food policy, poverty, and drought issues. Then in 2000 she set up Afrisco Certified Organic as the only accredited indigenous South African organic certification body. Diana is the Managing Director of Afrisco and a hands-on activist in the empowerment of small scale farmers.

Her commitment to organic agriculture comes from her belief that chemical agriculture is responsible for much of the devastation of Africa’s fragile soils, as well as promoting climate change. She is committed to a more sustainable agriculture.

For a list of operations/farms which have been inspected by Afrisco’s inspectors, and approved for organic certification by Afrisco’s Certification Committee, click here.

Diana presented the importance of sustainable produce and farming to the Professional Cookery (PC2013) group in preparation of “educated choices” they will have to make in the industry.

Thank you Diana for your informative presentation.
