A key element in the stimulus package is to increase the number of farmers opting to go organic, reports Finans.
As such, a total of 1.1 billion kroner in total will be spent in 2018 and 2019 in order to help farmers to convert to organic production.
The coalition government is supported by parliamentary ally the Danish People’s Party in the agricultural initiative.
Minister for Food and the Environment Esben Lunde Larsen told Ritzau that Danish organic produce was in high demand.
“There is a sense of higher demand from Danish consumers for organic products. In fact, we have the largest domestic market in the world, with over ten percent of our domestic [food] market being organic,” Larsen said.
