The Green Path-Forgotten Food' in Malleswaram offers organic food choices and also provides a suitable venue for eco-friendly get-togethers. But worry not, the food here isn't bland and boring. Rather, it's wholesome and tasty. The place has a nice relaxed ambience and does justice to the name with plenty of refreshing greens around. The decor is simple yet lively. The furniture and flooring are made out of waste wood. And everything you eat here comes from the terrace garden that's right above the restaurant. The food, they say, is completely organic. Previously a lawyer, Jayaram started this restaurant last year. Hailing from a small village on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border, he has a deep-rooted attachment with nature.

Getting a business to taste 'organic' growth 7.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Agriculture, the primary economic activity in India 'employing the largest workforce in the country', dates back to the early stages of civilisational growth. Since time immemorial, Indian farmers have tamed the land's soil, tapped her fertility, and perfected the cultivation of myriad crops, using improvised techniques where animals were the source of energy for tilling, irrigation, and when natural manures played a pivotal role. But the Green Revolution in the early 1960s, backed by the introduction of high-yielding seeds and chemical fertilisers, led to a hike in production and paved the way for economic independence of farmers. But, while the natural strength of the soil was getting lost in the long run, the Green Revolution brought in a new set of crops against conventional ones like pearl millet (bajra), foxtail millet (navane akki), finger millet (ragi), and sorghum (jowar). Since dramatic climatic changes brought drought, leading to drastic reduction in the agricultural yields, policymakers, ...

K'taka should take lead in organic production: Nirmala 30.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The demand and consumption of organic products have increased globally by 10%. India's export of organic products, too, increased by 30% in the last one year but a lot more needs to be done, Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Nirmala Sitharaman said on Sunday. She was speaking at the valedictory function of the three-day-long Organics and Millets 2017 - National Trade Fair. She said the consumption of organic products was 32% in India and 47% in the US. The challenge before the Indian market is to increase aggregation, packaging and processing. The startups of Karnataka should come forward and take up the challenge, she said. "Byadgi chillies and black pepper from Karnataka are in good demand. But there is a need to package them well. There is one unit in Byadgi, but it is not up to the mark. It needs to improve. More and more organic and millet products should be made in Karnataka," she said. Minister for Agriculture Krishna Byre Gowda said the state government would organise an ...
