Blog: Soil Association speaks out

Catherine Sleep | 12 October 2006

There are reports of discord at the Soil Association, bastion of organic standards in the UK, with at least one confirmed resignation at a senior level.

In a punchy comment piece written for the Guardian, Soil Association policy director Peter Melchett sheds some light on the internal concerns of the organisation and urges the industry to pull together to change the market for the better. It’s worth a read.
