Trade events & training
As part of our offering for Certification clients, we provide learning days, imparting in-depth knowledge on what organic means, the processes involved in growing and selling organic, and information about organic trade, including consumer insights and commercial trends. These learning days take place on a regular basis, merging group learning sessions with delicious organic food and stunning landscapes to create a fun, inspiring day for all involved.
Throughout the year, we take part in many industry and trade events. This gives us the opportunity to engage with people to find out more about what we do as an organisation and to learn about organic principles. If you'd like to know which events we are attending, please take a look at the links below.
We also host events and webinars for businesses who haven’t yet certified with us to help them understand the market and business benefits of organic certification, the application and inspections process, and how we can help.
