The Ultimate Christmas Dinner
Ultimate Christmas Dinner
From your turkey to your trimmings, the parsnips to the puds, the food we put on our tables this Christmas really can make a world of difference. Opting for organic means supporting a certified way of farming that works with nature, reducing pesticide use, providing habitats for insects, birds and other wildlife, and rearing truly free-range animals.
Organic food is widely available; all the certified products we’ve selected for the ultimate Christmas dinner below can be found in supermarkets, independent shops and online. If you're looking for organic meat specifically, check out our Christmas Meat guide.
