At present there is no specific market channel for organic products in Bangladesh. In order to facilitate the marketing of organic products of the farmers UD has been trying to develop a market channel called Lokaj Bazar as part of the Lokaj Eco-friendly Agri-Enterprise having direct ownership of farmers. Initially, UD & SKS has opened an outlet at Jhenaidah town and taking preparation to open three more outlets at local market level and one at Dhaka.

Through this channel the farmers have started to sell their safe food products both perishable & non-perishable directly to the consumers. Specially the women farmers are becoming more benefited from the enterprise as they are able to sell their surplus organic homestead production though the channel and get higher price than the traditional market.
