Organics Aotearoa New Zealand Chair Chris Morrison talks to Dom about what this cash injection can do to support organic farming, the controversy of genetic engineering, the growing demand for non-GMO products among high-end consumers in export markets and more.

He also reflects on his journey in the industry, from founding Phoenix Organics to leading major organic beverage companies.
