Organic Buying Guide
These are incredibly positive times for the UK organic market, with the Soil Association’s 2016 Organic Market Report revealing a third consecutive year of sales growth. Organic sales increased by 4.9% in 2015 to sit at a market value of £1.95 billion.
Ground breaking research has helped to fuel increased consumer awareness, especially amongst young socially conscious consumers, that organic products are simply better for us and the environment. This is translating into increased product innovation and development, with Soil Association Certification revealing that they are certifying a record number of new products including a significantly growing number of health and beauty brands.
From organic farmers to manufacturers, independent retailers to restaurant owners, confidence is high within the industry that this current level of market growth can be sustained long term. All in all, we’re moving towards a very exciting time for organic and to help you make the most of this momentum, we’ve launched a brand new updated version of our Organic Buying Guide, which is packed full of the latest new products and our proven best-selling organic products.
