The Soil Association Certification Trade Conference is back and this year we're going virtual! Join us and the organic community for a connected series of free online insight sessions, taking place over 3 consecutive mornings.

Put the kettle on and take part in this year's event over your morning coffee (or tea!) to be inspired by the momentum of the organic movement, gain valuable insight into the market and equip yourself with the knowledge you need to grow your organic business. 

The organic sector is evolving faster than ever before

The global shocks of the year so far and the growing wave of public planet-centric opinion mean that the time for organic really is now. Designed to inspire, inform and shine a light on innovation, the 3-day event will explore how, as an industry, we can seize the opportunity of the moment to make organic more relevant and successful than ever.

What's on?

Hear from experts and brands in the organic community, economists, academics, and the leaders and changemakers driving the purposeful business movement forward.

This event series is for anyone working in the food and drink industry; from our certified organic clients, retailers and partners to businesses exploring the benefits of organic certification. Attend all 3 mornings to get the full picture.

Day 1 | Inspire

We’ll explore why business with purpose is the future. Be inspired to be part of a strong organic movement and join Soil Association CEO Helen Browning from her farm to hear how organic is the answer to nature, climate and health issues.

Day 2 | Inform

Wednesday 21st October | 10 - 11 am

Get the facts to understand how the global and organic markets have evolved through COVID-19, the impact of shopper attitudes towards planet-centric buying which have been magnified since the pandemic and spurred major developments in retail and beyond.

Day 3 | Innovate

Join us as we look forward to discuss the major trends and innovations shaping the UK food and drink market and what the opportunities are for organic.
