An issue that’s unfair. Turmeric and ginger, labelled organic, has flooded the Australian market from Vietnam and Myanmah  in the last year. It wholesales for $6 a kilo.  Of course in a country where money rules the fact the organic labelling is not verified in truth, it leaves the hard working and ethical clean certified organic growers here in Australia high and dry. Even selling at $10 a kilo and as certified, it is no longer worth it other than to pay wages to workers to scrub the tubers clean. Planting, growing, digging is all for free.
