As long time supporters of organic produce we welcome the good news from the Soil Assocation. The UK organic market is now worth £2.33 billion with a 5.3% growth in 2018.
This is the seventh year of consecutive growth. Almost £45 million is spent on organic each week in the UK.
The Soil Association believes that the trend is down to health, provenance of the goods, and ‘conscious consumerism’.
Organic does not only protect you from the effects of pesticides and other chemicals in your body, it also helps protect workers and the land in producing countries.
