In a mountainous region in North-eastern India, Sikkim (7.096 km2) is now a 100% organic state, with no chemical pesticides or fertilizers and no GMOs. By the end of 2015, all Sikkim’s farms had been certified organic by an independent certifying body. On January 18, 2016, at Sikkim’s Organic Festival, the Prime Minister of India declared the state fully organic. This matters because it shows that organic food in an entire region is possible. “Could organic food succeed in other areas, too?” YES IT CAN as we have an example here.
