Going for Growth: Transforming organic food and farming in the UK

15-16 November 2018

Dunchurch Park Hotel, Rugby, Warwickshire CV22 6QW

The UK Organic Congress 2018 is a unique event organised jointly by leading organic organisations, including the Organic Research Centre, Landworkers' Alliance, Organic Arable, Organic Farmers & Growers, Organic Growers Alliance, Organic Trade Board, Soil Association and Whole Health Agriculture.

Going for Growth

Big opportunities exist for producers to convert to organic production, supported by a food industry responsive to consumer demand, delivering environmental as well as economic gains.

Reaffirming the potential of organic food and farming in the UK needs fresh approaches to ensure core organic principles and the expectations of citizens can be delivered. As we contemplate leaving the EU, what transformations should we be seeking to make the UK an organic world leader again?

The UK Organic Congress will feature a new, positive vision for the contribution that organic can make to UK food and farming, including an aspiration to be up there with the best in terms of production and market shares.

Who should come?

The Congress is aimed at anyone involved in or interested in the business of organic food and farming, including:

  • Farmers, growers and land managers
  • Food businesses in organic supply chains, including input suppliers, retailers and caterers
  • Professionals that engage with the sector, including consultants, land agents, bank managers and researchers
  • Government agency officials and policy-makers
  • Farming, environmental and food NGOs work with producers and food businesses
  • And many more!
