Organic food on the rise

ORGANIC food advocate organisation the Soil Association says its Organic September campaign helped boost annual organic sales to more than £100m.
Quoting Nielsen Homescan figures it said 83% of UK households purchase organic products in some form.
Nielsen figures for the year to 11 October are said to show growth of 1.6%, compared to the previous year, in contrast to non-organic market decline of 0.6%. Organic eggs sales grew by 11.7%, organic dairy sales were up 8.4%, and organic poultry sales grew 6.6%.
