A new study by the Soil Association has highlighted the need for British farmers to increase supplies of organic foods to domestic supermarket chains, or risk missing out on the boom in organic sales. Figures published by the organic campaign group suggest that sales of organic foods are rising faster in Britain than in any other European country. During the last year, British shops sold £802m (US$1.1bn) worth of organic food. By sourcing at least 75% of their products abroad, however, supermarkets are keeping a stranglehold over the market and farm gate prices.
