Fresh Produce Campaign
Calling all growers of fresh produce!
Help us celebrate your organic fruit and veg
Soil Association Certification will be kicking off 2018 with a Fresh Produce campaign, celebrating and encouraging people to buy and eat organic, fresh, seasonal and local (where possible) vegetables, salads and fruit.
To do this we need your help
We want to enable people across the UK to identify and locate their local supplier of Soil Association-certified organic fresh fruit and vegetables, be it via a veg box, farm gate, farmers’ market or their local independent retailer or supermarket. We will do this using the existing “Box Scheme” marketplace which is already on our website, and we have added new categories for “Farm Gate” and “Farmers’ Market”, as well as veg boxes. If you are a supplier to supermarkets you can also list your products under "other", or get involved in the campaign by telling us your story (see below).
To be part of this exciting campaign list your products on the marketplace by 15th January 2018. It’s easy to list your box scheme/farm/market details, all you need is your licence number, product details, website link (if you have one) and an image to showcase your offering. Remember to tick all the categories that apply to you (farmers’ market/veg box/farm gate).
Other ways to promote your business:
- Hint & tips
- Nominate your “hero veg/salad/fruit of the month”
- Tell your story
If you have any tasty seasonal recipes, handy hints for buying/eating seasonally, suggestions for our monthly fruit or veg “hero” or if you’d like to tell us the story of your business, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What we will do for you:
- Showcase your produce and feature your business on our website
- Provide printed material (e.g. postcards) to help you promote organic
- Access to a digital toolkit to help you promote the campaign online
