Jodi Koberinski will help answer this much debated question and demonstrate why organic should be a part of your personal health strategy.
Jodi’s presentation will address the latest wave of “anti-organic” press that has filled the media. She will begin by providing a brief overview of Canada’s organic sector- its history, the development and adoption of national standards, and the current state of the sector. She will then look at some of the studies being used to discredit organic foods and how their findings are being misused to draw conclusions by addressing common scientific “blunders” like “third party authority”. Finally, she will walk the audience through the overwhelming body of evidence pointing to the health benefits of organic foods as well as the many environmental benefits of organic agriculture that are often unacknowledged by negative press.
Prepare to walk away with a greater understanding of the value of organic agriculture and food and be better equipped to critically evaluate information that is presented in the media so you can make more informed decisions.
Jodi Koberinski has made a career of transforming food systems as an entrepreneur and as an advocate. A pioneer in small scale organic processing, Jodi has experience with product research and development, certification, organic sourcing, marketing and business planning.
