US - Eurozone Accept Each Other's Organic Food Standards

After about 4 years of negotiations. American and European Union officials have decided that, with just a few minor exceptions, the differences in their standards for being considered an "organic" food were not significant and that they would begin to accept each others standards. This means that the market for organic foods, on both sides of the Atlantic, is about to double (at least from the producers' perspective). This should have the eventual effect of broadening selection and lowering costs (and, we may hope, prices). Good news for growers, distributors and consumers.
