African land clearances and organic cotton

Written by Brett Mathews

Following the release of the recent Textile Exchange organic cotton report, one statistic included in the figures immediately jumped out to our team of journalists. That was the brand new production figures for organic cotton in Ethiopia where previously no organic cotton fibres have been documented.

Since then we've been in touch with the certifiers concerned – ICEA – which has confirmed that 145 mt of organic cotton was grown on 900 hectares of a 4600 ha project in the Korcha area of the lower Omo Valley Ethiopia by Turkish company Else Group.
