2 cope with the increasing demand for healthy food and environmental protection, many countries have actively been developing organic farming since the 1990’s. Coupled with the shrinking growth of the local farming industry owing to urbanization and economic transition, the Government has been assisting the local farming community to develop organic farming since 2000. A new direction has been charted to develop a new market with higher returns. In order to allow organic market growing healthily and rapidly, a set of organic standards and a certification system is needed.
With funding supports from the Agricultural Development Fund of Vegetable Marketing Organization, the Hong Kong Organic Resource Centre (HKORC) was hence established in December 2002 and commenced full operation in March 2003. It is the first local non-profit organization under the Agricultural Development Fund to facilitate the development of organic agriculture by promotion of organic farming and organic products to the agricultural sector and consumers. And Hong Kong Organic Resource Centre Certification Limited, managed by HKORC, is responsible for the establishment of a local certification system of organic products as well as the approval of application of organic product certification.
about_us_2We envision HKORC as an organization with the devotion in increasing the awareness of farmers, consumers and the general public about the role of certification in the production and marketing of organic products, and promoting the sustainable development of organic farming in Hong Kong, so as to ensure a safe and quality food supply and an ecologically balanced living environment for our future generations.
