Our guest this week has had many years experience in the Chinese organic produce market.

Donald Nordeng is the CEO of BioGro New Zealand, the country's largest organic certification agency.

New Zealand signed an equivalency agreement with China three years ago meaning both countries recognise each other's certification.

Donald says with more steps underway there's huge potential for local organic farmers in a market worth more than $6 billion.
