The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) last week signed an equivalency agreement with Switzerland enabling the sale of US and Swiss organic products in either country.

This spells good news for US organic growers that will no longer need to pay two sets of fees or undertake two sets of inspections and paperwork to access the world’s most prolific organic consumer market; the population of Switzerland consumes more organic produce per person than any other global population, according to the Organic Trade Association.
