On The Table – Konrad Hauptfleish

Find out why Sonia Mountford is so keen on the Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) as she chats to Konrad Hauptfleish on the way to a farm in Swellendam.

Hauptfleish is the Academy and Program Manager at IFOAM and provides some insight into the basics of organic farming and the PGS organic certification. He also encourages a close relationship with your food and says that organic farming should be integrated into sustainability development goals and solutions to our climate change challenges.

    The Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) is a working solution which allows consumers to actively participate in knowing where their food comes from and how it was grown. In fact, it is a requirement of a PGS that the consumers or customers of the produce visit farms. See more about PGS here… https://greenroadnews.wordpress.com/
