How is organic food changing the landscape of food production? We talk with the vice president of brand marketing for Organic Valley, Lewis Goldstein, about his unique company and why they think everyone should know what’s in their food.

We originally said organic food is grown without the use of pesticides. Organic farmers can use pesticides from a restricted list approved by the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB).
Also, some listeners felt we didn’t push back enough in our interviewing. We agree. We should have pushed back on certain assertions made by Goldstein. Current science does not support his beliefs that GMOs will some day be found to cause allergies and diseases, for example.
WPSU is also planning a follow up Take Note interview with a focus on conventional farming.
