Support for Independent Retailers
Grow your organic sales
As the organic market grows, organic consumers are shopping more often, more ethically and more locally. There hasn’t been a better time to sell organic.
Soil Association Certification is committed to supporting continued growth in all areas of the organic market, highlighting the role that food systems can play in:
- mitigating climate change,
- halting biodiversity loss,
- improving soil fertility, and
- farming in a way that's better for animals, people and the planet.
By working in partnership with independent retailers, we can reach a wider consumer audience, build awareness of what organic is and reasons to buy organic.
We have a number of ways you can get involved, such as:
- ordering a FREE point of sale pack to help clearly communicate the benefits of organic to your customers,
- taking part in one of our Organic Learning Days,
- downloading a visual merchandising guide, or
- signing up to our Indie News e-newsletter.
Whether you're an independent retailer or run a farm shop, when you choose organic products for your shelves, you're offering your customers the chance to help change our food system for the better!
