CEO Forum with Gary Hirshberg Stonyfield Farms
Organic foods currently make up less than 1% of the food consumed in China. Meanwhile, China's environmental challenges are growing'as carbon levels in the atmosphere increase, droughts threaten, food prices rise and international pressure to find an answer to global climate change grows. But organic agriculture offers a solution, a way to conserve water and capture carbon from the atmosphere, while increasing yields and lowering prices.
Gary Hirshberg, CEO of Stonyfield Farms, Beth Keck, Sr. Director, International Sustainability, Wal-Mart and Orville Schell, Director of the Asia Society Center on U.S.-China Relations discuss: Is China ready for a change in the way it produces its food? What effect would an organic China have on world markets and the world's climate?
