Blog: Dean BestUK discusses future of organic market

Dean Best | 22 September 2009

The UK’s top organic producers will meet today (22 September) at The Organic Trade Board’s ‘Go for Growth’ Conference to discuss plans to grow the market by GBP1bn (50%) by 2015.

The plans are backed by some of the UK’s largest organic producers – including Green & Blacks, OMSCO, Rachel’s, Yeo Valley and Organix – and aim to reignite slowing sales.

The conference will showcase the plan, case studies from organic companies, and it will look at how the industry plans to work together to generate growth. 

Tesco will be in attendance to talk about how it plans to rebuild its organic ranges in store, after scaling them back following the downturn.

Research house TNS will also be in attendance to outline the most up-to-date stats on the market and the consumer and will provide insights into ways to stimulate organic growth.
