Healthy Planet, Healthy Farmers, Healthy Consumers

– The Bio Basics Way

Bio Basics is a social enterprise with a mission to work for the well-being of the environment, farmers and consumers.

Led by professionals aiming  to create a social & environmental impact, we work to create a market for genuine organic, whole foods, by educating the consumers, and making it easy for them to order and access safe organic food and other organic products for themselves and their families.

Are you eating SAFE FOOD

Our present food supply uses chemicals from seed sowing to growth to harvest & storage and even transportation. Besides, a lot of new-age foods use highly refined (but nutrition-starved) items like polished white rice, white sugar, maida, preservatives, etc.

Besides, the produce is no longer seasonal and is imported from even across the oceans. This necessitates refrigeration and additional processing and chemicals.

It is hardly a surprise that diseases like diabetes, heart ailments and cancer are on the rise.

The way out? Choose nutritious food, organically produced and safely delivered to your home.

A very small percentage of price you pay is actually received by the farmer who produces it for you. And when we pick and choose for aesthetically “good looking” fruits and vegetables, you indirectly pressurize the farmer to use more chemicals. To top it all, we all want cheap food!

The result, many farmers are trapped in debt. No farmer today wants his children to take to farming.

It is hardly a surprise that farmers are also becoming victims of cancer and suicide seems to be the only way out of indebtedness.

The way out? Make food choices that protect our farmers’ livelihood.

The chemicals used in agriculture has extensively contaminated the air, soil and water. To the extent that in Antarctica (where these chemical have never ever been used), the bodies of penguins have pesticide traces today.

Besides, modern agricultural practices result in increased “Water Footprint“. And by wanting food out of season from around the world, we have significantly increased our “Food Miles“. Exporting food also results in export of “Virtual Water” (also called “Embedded / Embodied Water”), and necessitates use of Ozone Depleting Substances like CFCs, HFCs & HCFCs for refrigeration.

The way out? Make food choices that also protects Mother Nature.

Be Organic, Buy Organic

Bio Basics recommends “Being Organic” first, before “Buying Organic”. Why?

Because all of us need to get closer to nature and live sustainable lives, respectful of our society and environment, given the concerns of farmer suicides, water scarcity and global warming.

Because we need to understand the concept of “Being Organic” to appreciate the products and processes that comprise “Buying Organic”.

Over time, we, the urban consumers, have been calling the shots – demanding cheaper food, prettier and unseasonal fruits and vegetables, longer shelf-life for our groceries, exotic food from afar, tastier and fancier foods. And as consumers demanded more, the food industry has been forced to respond with use of fancier and stronger chemicals, exploitation of the farmer and misuse of our soil and water.

So let us first BE ORGANIC by:
1. Prioritizing safe food over cheap and fancy food
2. Respecting the labor of the farmer by not beating down the prices of produce
3. Understanding the complexity of farming by trying to grow a kitchen garden
4. Committing to protect the environment in our own way (by segregating waste, avoiding plastics, using less water and electricity)
5. Avoiding fancy technologies (refrigeration, microwaving, etc.) when it comes to food
6. Keeping chemicals out of our homes (laundry, dish washing, cleaning) and our bodies (soaps, shampoos, lotions, etc.)
7. Read, watch documentaries, videos to educate ourselves and our children on social and environmental issues
8. Adapting to natural fabric (cotton) and vegetable dyes

Then…

BUY ORGANIC by:
1. Going organic across cereals, pulses, veggies, fruits, spices, sweeteners, and oils.
2. Choosing whole foods over refined foods; develop a taste for rice with bran, pulses with skin, cold-pressed oils, raw cane sugar etc.
3. Knowing our retailers well; ask for his sources and request for farm visits to ensure that his farmers are growing food organically
4. Accepting not-so-pretty fruits and vegetables
5. Learning to cook and eat local and seasonal produce
6. Understanding how to deal with groceries at our end and avoid infestation
7. Avoiding processed food items and fast-food

Green Ideas for a Blue Planet

  • Farmers First

    The backbone of Bio Basics lies in respecting the farmer for his commitment to organic and his farming effort by ensuring fair remuneration, which is maximised by sourcing directly from him.

  • Holistic Consumer Health

    The health of the consumer – and the farmer – automatically and simultaneously gets ensured through emphasis on the well-being of the organic farmer – who gets incentivized to grow safe, chemical-free food, not just for his family but for the market as well.

  • Safe Food Movement

    Bio Basics envisons creating an pan-India urban Movement for Safe Food though various awareness generation initiatives, that, we hope will fuel an increased consumer choice of Organic Food options.

  • Bequeathing a Pristine Planet

    A mass movement of farmers & consumers going organic will set in motion an environmental cleanup of Mother Earth

The Basics of Bio

Launched in April 2015 as a social enterprise with a mission to work for the well-being of the environment, farmers and consumers.

We work to create a market for safe, organic, whole foods by educating the consumers, while making it easy for them to order and access safe food.

We offer a free “Know Your Food” presentation to educate consumers about the hazards in the current food system.

We source and offer over 200 food and non-food basics that a family needs, all chemical-free, whole, and safe to consume – vegetables, fruits, herbs, greens, traditional rices, unpolished millets, whole pulses, cold-pressed oils, pure spices, sweeteners, personal care and home care products.

We envision Bio Basics to be a platform for both consumers and farmers. We aim to provide a comprehensive range of genuinely reliable organic food and sustainable products to consumers at a reasonable price supported by superior service. At the same time, we want to offer a single-stop, direct delivery, fair price option for organic farmers.

By being such a platform, Bio Basics will inspire more consumers to buy organic, and many more farmers to cultivate organically. As this platform grows to cover multiple cities in India, we believe this would create a game-changing impact on the health of our consumers, the livelihoods of our farmers and above all, the well-being of our environment.
