Organic Trade Union

From the Soil Association:

“While this year’s report confirms a positive future for organic food and farming, the organic movement faces challenges in the long-term from climate change and rising oil prices, as do all farmers and growers,” said Helen Browning, director of food and farming for the Soil Association. “Rises in feed and fuel prices will need to be reflected in food prices at the checkout that enable farmers to get a fair return on their production costs.”

She said consumers and retailers must learn to accept higher prices as an unavoidable consequence of the “true cost” of producing staple products.

More money for our members! Unavoidable! We are owed a profit!
