Why organic products are more expensive than other products ?
 
Certified organic products are generally more expensive than their conventional counterparts (for which prices have been declining) for a number of reasons:
 
Organic cotton supply is limited as compared to demand;
Production costs for organic products are typically higher because of greater labour inputs per unit of output and because greater diversity of enterprises means economies of scale cannot be achieved;
Post-harvest handling of relatively small quantities of organic products results in higher costs because of the mandatory segregation of organic and conventional produce, especially for processing and transportation;
Marketing and the distribution chain for organic products is relatively inefficient and costs are higher because of relatively small volumes.
