Biar harganya lebih mahal, produk pangan organik tetap laris manis. Masyarakat banyak memburunya dengan alasan lebih sehat dan aman dikonsumsi. Bahkan permintaan negara lain, Singapura misalnya, atas produk pangan organik terbilang tinggi.
Bukan cuma produknya yang aman, proses dan sistem pertanian berbasis organik juga ramah lingkungan. Sayang, petani tak bisa leluasa mengembangkan pertanian organik ini karena sejumlah halangan.

There are bright forecasts for Indonesia's economy this year, but the prospects for its rice fields appear far dimmer. As the economy booms along, more and more rice fields are converted to housing estates and industrial areas, which could spell trouble for a country that lives on the grain as one of the biggest consumers of rice in the world.

Food price volatility does not significantly affect countries that do not depend on imported food; however, it will hit food-importing countries, commonly inhabited by large populations of poor people, including Indonesia.
Four major driving causes of food price volatility are weather, high demand (especially from China and India), low output and biofuel. Other factors include unscrupulous agricultural practices that ignore the ecosystem equilibrium and will potentially threaten a sustainable food supply. The apparent effect of climate change on the rising prices of agricultural commodities also indicates the need for a fundamental paradigm shift in our agricultural practices.
