Organic Fresh Produce Forum
Organic Fresh Produce Forum: What’s next for organic fresh produce?
8th September; 11-12.30pm; Online
Organic Fresh Produce saw a dramatic increase in sales through the course of the pandemic, largely driven by changing shopping habits, and an increased focus by shoppers on health, sustainability and integrity. However, with lockdown lifting, and sales settling, albeit remaining higher than pre pandemic, there are new challenges and opportunities for the sector including renewed consumer interests on sustainable packaging and farm AI and tech to address labour availability issues.
This year’s organic produce forum will provide an update on the organic market and deep dive into some of these key topics affecting the fresh produce sector. Alongside launching new insights on customer attitudes to packaging, you will hear from a range of speakers from across the industry including Abel & Cole, and Home Farm Nacton, alongside our own experts, on their key take outs on the opportunities and challenges for driving greater long term growth for organic fresh produce. There will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
This event is ideal for Soil Association Certified fresh produce packing businesses, on – farm processors, box schemes and retailers
