Organic cotton facing testing times in India

Written by Brett Mathews

cmia cottonPUNE: Organic’s share of the identity cotton market is declining in India due to pricing issues, the lack of availability of non-GMO seeds, and the “multiple costs” of certification which are having a knock-on effect on end-consumer products. Brands sourcing from India are shifting to Better Cotton Initiative (BCI) cotton which, due to current market conditions, is attracting a premium over organic cotton.
