ANOTHER GOOD YEAR FOR ORGANIC MARKET
In reference to our Organic Market Report 2006, featured in Meat Trades Journal 21 July, it is wonderful to report that, for the ninth successive year, the UK organic market has enjoyed a double-figure growth rate.
During 2005, the overall organic market increased by 30% - some three times higher than the previous year.
These statistics are remarkable and a cause for great optimism. These figures show the true reflection of the trust that millions of British consumers have invested in the integrity of organic food and farming.
A really positive fact is that direct sales have increased for the second year running, with the greatest successes found where produce is sold through strong, independent brands. The Soil Association is working on a number of fronts to build producer confidence and to create structures where trading relationships work to protect long-term interests for organic producers.
