Speaking at the event and expressing gratitude towards the relentless efforts made by the farmers, Subrata Dutta, Group Managing Director, Organic India said, “Our farmers play a very crucial role for the ecology, economy and the society, at large. We conceptualized the Dharti Mitr Awards to celebrate our relationship with individual farmers that is built on interconnectedness – an approach that seeks to boost their confidence and the core objective of the event is to highlight the farmer’s exceptional innovations in the field of organic farming.”
Speaking on the efforts of Organic India, William Nanda Bissell, Chairman, Fabindia, said, “Organic India instituted the Dharti Mitr Awards four years ago and this year, it has returned bigger and brighter in collaboration with the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival (DPIFF).

This appreciation and recognition by Organic India will strengthen the confidence of farmers and further build the organic farming ecosystem in India. Organic India is a very critical part of our efforts to establish new benchmarks for growth driven by ESG values.”

In the past years, Organic India has been rigorously working towards training the farmers and providing educational opportunities that enable self-sufficiency and the development of skills that can be passed on to future generations.
Expressing delight about the initiative, Dr. Ashok Yadav, Advisor, Ministry of Agriculture said, “The event has recognized the outstanding effort of organic farmers. We would like to congratulate all the participants and winners who are the unsung heroes of the agricultural landscape. Over the past 4 years of my association with Dharti Mitr, we have witnessed the participation and enthusiasm increasing and we are looking forward to witness more innovation in the segment which will add to the global organic farming movement to help the world in achieving the true meaning of sustainable development.”
