The EU organic regulations (EC 834/2007 and EC 889/2008) aim to provide consumers with authentic organic food that respects natural life systems. These regulations are principle based and designed to prohibit and or place very strict limits on the use of pesticides, fertilisers, livestock veterinary treatments, food additives and other processing aids, in order to create healthy nourishing food.
The organic market in the UK is growing from strength to strength, achieving nearly 5% growth in a market that is banging on the door of 2 billion pounds in value. If you are a farmer, grower, processor or trader and are interested in going organic or switching certification bodies, get in touch!
