We are growing - Grow with us!!
Established in 2010, www.indonesiaorganic.com, will:
Our vision is to be a linking site and through expanding the existing and future businesses and knowledge in Indonesia, the organic industry will grow. There are many other talented, successful people building the industries; however, information is extremely difficult to find. No one has tackled the country as a whole.
Through the power of the group each has a better opportunity for success. If the individual concerns succeed, the whole grows. When the whole grows, the individuals succeed.
The concept has been proven.
After launching in 2010, www.indonesiaorganic.com has received:
January & February 2012:
Traffic to many business categories have more than doubled. The most popular categories to date are:
Information categories that are also very popular: News, Why Organic?, Volunteering, Suku Baduy Masyarakat Sunda Indonesia, Fair Trade.
Advertisers will have a unique 1000 word webpage that links to their email or business website at a fraction of any other advertising media. Adverters will take gain from our high search ranking and SEO activities with no additional cost to them.
We are in the process of upgrading the site with more functions and two languages in parallel - Indonesian and English.
"Since its inception, the worldwide web has served as a resource base and vehicle to share information."
A social action firm, CV Dunia dan Gaya, developed a practical, organic-focused website that delivers the same core benefits, as well as links people who wish to live healthily from a well balanced ecosystem and to conserve earth's resources for future generations, particularly those in Indonesia who are so reliant on its natural bounty for their day - to - day livelihood.
Through close involvement in Bali's struggling organic sector, they identified the urgent need for a comprehensive bridge between organic producers and organizations related to the organic sector with audiences ranging from individuals to high volume international buyers. The demand for a centralized web-based resource is particularly poignant for small-scale organic farmers and producers who lack the skills and resources to cost effectively distribute to highly fragmented buyers. Some are reluctant to convert to organic growing without a marketing solution. The indonesiaorganic.com site provides the ideal forum for small to large producers to efficiently promote their goods and services.
Building on this powerful networking premise, CV Dunia dan Gaya further embraced the site as a ‘one-stop shop' in Indonesia for organic information. Interested parties will no longer waste time navigating numerous topic-specific sites. The current eclectic content is relevant for educators, students, project management, business executives, producers and consumers - those who already live organically and those who aspire to do so. The dual language site will be updated regularly as the organic world in Indonesia is rapidly evolving. Sharing success stories and ideas will be the catalyst for further innovation in an industry vital to personal health and mother earth's well being."
"Organic" is a rapidly expanding audience and demand in Indonesia and the world. There is a need for information about organic within Indonesia and for Indonesia to the world.
For many reasons, projects and businesses are focused on their own independent success. There is no "how-to-find" resource in Indonesia - until now.
1. Becomes the "go to place" for consumers, producers and educators of organic products within Indonesia and provides the links to connect the industry to the rest of the world. Creates access to the rapidly expanding amount of information, education and businesses in Indonesia.
2. Brings the industry together to benefit more and the whole. Through the growth and benefit to each individual concern, the whole benefits more; and through the growth and benefit of the whole, individual concerns benefit more.
Through benefit to each individual concern, the whole benefits more; through benefit to the whole, each individual will grow.
Launched in 2010, www.indonesiaorganic.com (CV Dunia dan Gaya) is currently based in Bali, Indonesia. We are experienced in business and project management, web development, small and local business support, export, and knowledge of the organic industry from many directions.
We are committed to expanding the organic industry and knowledge in Indonesia; to provide links for all concerns - large, small or inexperienced, NGO, education, resources; and to bring business to Indonesia from the rest of the world.
We are a member of THE HUB by Lohas, advocating and supporting LOHAS objectives.
Until funding is available for a staff translator for Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian language) and English, English will be the primary website language as the first international language - and as one of the main audiences is international. We will program the very effective Google Translator program into the website to provide translations from Indonesian to English and from English to Indonesian. We will do everything we can to respect that the primary audience is Indonesian and use Indonesian language first. Wherever possible, or when the source material is Bahasa Indonesia, the information will remain in Indonesian language.
Currently self-funded, the project is seeking both venture capital and businesses that through a donation will remain "founding supporters" and will be listed on the website as such.
Future income revenue will be from advertising.

Manifesto of Gangplank Phoenix:
We are a group of connected individuals and small businesses creating an economy of innovation and creativity in the Valley. We envision a new economic engine comprised of collaboration and community, in contrast to the silos and secrecy left by the dependence on tourism and land development.
We have the talent. We just need to work together. Different environments need to overlap, to connect and to interact in order to transform our culture. In order to create a sustainable community based on trust, we value:
* collaboration over competition
This new economy cannot thrive without engaging the larger business, creative, entrepreneurial, governmental, and technical communities together.
We believe that innovation breeds innovation. We will transform the Valley culture into one supportive of the entrepreneurial spirit, of risk taking, of pioneering into the unknown territories as the founders of our municipalities once did. This requires education, entrepreneurship and creative workspaces.
We are Gangplank.
