Organic food comes only from trusted sources. In a nutshell, organic means the highest standards of animal welfare, fewer pesticides, no artificial colours and preservatives, no routine use of antibiotics and GM Free.
Earlier this year, the 2017 Organic Market Report revealed that the organic products market is now in its fifth consecutive year of sales growth, with +7.1% growth of organic food and drink in the UK. Organic products represent total annual sales of over £2 billion. Tesco, Ocado and Waitrose have all declared big sales increases for these products, which includes groceries such as olive oil, pasta and cooking sauces.
Any food products labelled as organic must meet a strict set of standards, which set out what farmers and manufacturers have to do with regard to the production of organic food.
Here at Boughey, we have recently undergone an Organic Food Federation Audit. This ensures that all our processes comply with the organisation’s stringent standards for the storage and transport of organic food. With the growing popularity of organic food, consumers need to be able to be rest assured that it can be traced from the farm to the fork with every process along the way obtaining a certificate of conformity. With Brexit on the horizon, there is huge potential for further growth in British organic exports too.
We’re 100% dedicated to smarter ways to do businesses.
