DON'T just eat healthy; eat organically-grown products. ‘Organic’ not only means the food is chemical-free, but also that farming is done in a more sustainable manner that is not only good for the ­environment but also good for you. One of the most popular brands of organic foods in the market is Country Farm Organics, which can be found in all major ­supermarket and retail outlets. The company, which first started its operations back in 1998, provides everything from organic grains, seeds and flour, to organic beverages like coffee and tea. “Back then, the market was small because not many ­people understood what organic was,” says Albert Chew, the ­general ­manager of Country Farm ­Organics, during an interview at his office in Shah Alam. “At that time, organic food was considered food for the sick. If you had cancer, the doctor would advise you to eat organic food,” Chew recalls.
