LEGAU, Germany, September 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
The Hansalim Federation from South Korea received the OWA Gold Award. With the international One World Award, the German organic food company Rapunzel Naturkost and the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) honored for the fourth time individuals, projects and innovative ideas that make the world a better and more just place thanks to their positive ecological, economic and social impact.
The Hansalim Federation is the largest CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) project. On 2,000 farms the association produces healthy food products for 1.6 million people. The product distribution is organized by 21 distributing coops, 180 health food stores and a sophisticated delivery system. At the same time, Hansalim fights for a world free of nuclear power and GMO. The jury was particularly impressed by the fact that Hansalim is not only cultivating - in the best sense of the word - its radical roots, but also manages to stay truly radical on its road to a huge federation. None of the federation's profit is privatized showing that an economy for the common good is possible even within a capitalistic system.
This year's OWA Gold Award that is endowed with 25,000 Euro was presented to two winners. Next to Hansalim the Timbaktu Collective from India was delighted to receive the highly coveted OWA Award. Individual OWA Silver Awards went to pioneer and environmental activist Ibrahima Seck from Senegal, Demeter winery family Frey from the USA, Biovega from Croatia and scientist and activist Prof. Rita Schwentesius from Germany/Mexico.
