Organic producer Tony Marshall of Highwood Crossing Farm near High River says organic products have seen more retail growth than conventional store shelf items.
"The regular retail market as far a food has seen annual growth in the single digit range for the past ten years where as the natual and organic sector has seen been experiencing double digit up in the 20-25% range"
Marshall says the "Try Healthy" forum was a good boost for the organic industry.
