Novapara to label organic foods

“Say NOO to GMO’s and harmful agriculture,” is the suggestion of the Novapara Organic Organization (NOO) as it launches an effort to see the intermironational community adopt organic agricultural practices.

The organization is hoping that the Kingdom of Novapara’s Fort Fuca Organic Act (FFOA), which is described as an “open document for any micronation to ratify” will encourage the community to adopt basic standards for organic agriculture. “[The Act] allows micronation farmers and corporations to have clear guidelines to properly grow and make their foods and advertise them as so,” said Novaparan ruler, Prince Xavier, in announcing the initiative.

Adoption of the Act would allow a micronation to label a food as “FFOA Grade Organic” if it meets six requirements that generally include it not being a genetically-modified organism, it not being subjected to synthetic or chemical treatments during its growth, and it not being artificially preserved.

While the FFOA is at present a minimalist document, with its content including only those six very generic requirements, it is hoped that it will be expanded in the future to include different types of certification according to Xavier.
