fnorrisThu, 16 Dec 2010 12:10:00 GMTSebastian Pole of Pukka Herbs in Bristol "We have always been 100% certified organic with the Soil Association because we felt strongly that we did not want to try and improve people's health but damage the planet's in the process. So an organic business was the only way."
