What is Annadata:

“Annadata – Citizens Movement for Safe Food” is a citizen-driven, expert- guided, voluntary movement born to resolve common man's restlessness about the toxicity in our everyday food..

‘Anna’ – means food which needs to be safe, nourishing and healthy. ‘Data’- means the giver whose intention and practices need to be pure; like producing nourishing food that is safe for entire Bio-diversity. (Water, Air, Doil, Micro-organisms).

Launch of the Movement

Annadata Organic Food Festival; arranged at the Bhimthadi Jatra – Pune between 22 and 25 December 2017 was the launch event of the Annadata-Citizen’s Movement for Safe Food. The event brought together over 350 Farmers (via 45 groups) and 20 suppliers in Pune and reached to over 3.5 Lacs consumers

Our work

Falling health is common in all walks of society. Food is as responsible for it as much as stress and pollution. Food is expected to nourish, but our diets have falling levels of nutrition. Whatever little available nutrition is also poisoned by chemicals. Safe Food is utmost necessary to escape this erosion of nutritive values of our everyday food. Food in every form is the result of farming. Farming is in the grip of the doctrine of the Green Revolution which advocates cultivation of hybrid seeds that have far less nutritive values than the traditional. Hybrid crops are susceptible to infections that warrant use of chemical pesticides. The residues of these deadly chemicals reach our bodies affecting human health in many ways. The awareness of safe food is vital to put an halt to this, and to ensure the building up of a healthy nation. Such a safe food will be raised from crops taken on local natural seeds, in their natural seasona l cycles without external chemical interventions to unnaturally engineer or boost yield.
