Environmental Ethics and the Organic Products Market - Organic agriculture is a method of production that answers to calls for "ethical extensionism" which, abandoning the anthropocentric view, recognizes new moral interests, among which the environment occupies a leading position. Considering that organic production processes alone do not suffice to guarantee ethical characterization of the market, environmental integrity must also be preserved in every further step "outside the farm gate. The paper addresses these topics, considering the producer’s viewpoint in terms of entrepreneurial objectives while also verifying whether certain characteristics of organic products can satisfy consumer’s expectations. The conclusion is that there can be no global market for organic products and, consequently, that the preservation and development of local markets is the only strategy entirely compatible with the principles of environmental ethics.
