Organic food is poised to take deeper root in urban India.

Supply chain models and retail formats are equally diverse and include small organic stores, supermarkets, community-supported agriculture, restaurants and e-commerce.

This study presents wide-ranging insights into the current state and future prospects of organic food markets in urban India. Focusing principally on Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad, this book :
- Documents emerging strategies, lessons learned and robust, field-tested models in organic food retailing
