A bold new action plan for organic food production to help build a more sustainable farming future and regenerate the rural economy is being launched for Scotland.
“Organic Ambitions: An Action Plan for organic food and farming in Scotland 2016-2020” will be unveiled on 27 January.
The new plan will be officially launched on the first day of the Organic Research Centre’s annual conference, being held in Bristol.
Organic Ambitions is a major revision of Organic Futures, an organic action plan produced in 2011 and revised in 2013, which aimed to strengthen Scotland’s organic food sector.
Wendy Seel, chairman of the Scottish Organic Forum, who have built the new plan following an extensive consultation, said: “Organic Ambitions will aim to build knowledge about organics, strength in the organic supply chain and skills across the organic sector.”
