Organic and Sustainable Agriculture News
Feds demand more shellfish oversight
Bangor Daily News - 5/8/2009.
By Mal Leary – Under threat from federal officials to ban the sale of Maine shellfish outside of the state, Maine budget writers are considering adding at least three new positions to the Department of Marine Resources to monitor the state’s shellfish industry. “We have been told, that in the eyes of the FDA [Food and Drug Administration] we need at least four positions to assure the public’s safety,” said Sen. Dennis Damon, D-Trenton, who co-chairs the Marine Resources Committee.
Politics of the plate: organic isn’t dead yet
Gourmet - 5/7/2009.
By Barry Estabrook – ... Neilsen’s research actually said that in March of this year, the organics market’s growth had slowed to a rate of one percent a month. If that rate continues, organic sales will actually rise by 12 percent this year. Well shy of the boom years’ 20 percent, but at a time when overall grocery sales are flat, double-digit increases are far from being a “dive.”

Kennebec Journal - 5/7/2009.
