Pollution of air and water around us is well-acknowledged and its effects have now reached our food-plates. Lifestyle diseases – hypertension, diabetes, heart- disease and cancer have become commonplace and it is increasingly clear that the root cause is the FOOD we consume. People all over the world are discussing the benefits of Organic food, Natural food, Slow food and Raw food, this is wonderful! However, how many of us truly understand, what Safe Food means?
The seriousness of the problem at hand led to the coagulation of some like-minded individuals, NGOs, organisations and a number of experts around Pune working in the fields of farming, health & nutrition and sustainability. The action plans converged into a ‘Citizen’s Movement’ working towards Safe-Food for All – consumers; the Farmers; the soil and the micro-organisms too.
“Annadata – Citizen’s Movement for Safe Food” is a citizen-driven, expert- guided, voluntary movement born to resolve common man’s restlessness about the toxicity in our everyday food.
‘Anna’ – means food which needs to be safe, nourishing and healthy. ‘Data’- means the giver whose intention and practices need to be pure; like producing nourishing food that is safe for entire Bio-diversity. (Water, Air, Doil, Micro-organisms).
“The Mission is to create Awareness about Safe food and make it available to all.”
“Launch of the Movement”
Annadata Organic Food Festival; arranged at the Bhimthadi Jatra – Pune between 22 and 25 December 2017 was the launch event of the Annadata-Citizen’s Movement for Safe Food. The event brought together over 350 Farmers (via 45 groups) and 20 suppliers in Pune and reached to over 3.5 Lacs consumers
