A distinguished audience for our CEO
Date Published: 08/07/2009
In approximately half an hour OF&Gs’ Chief Executive, Richard Jacobs, will be delivering a speech to an audience at the
Royal Show which will include EU Commissioners.
Richard was invited to do this by Defra, in order to present a view from a certifier. His presentation will be entitled ‘Organic food and farming: setting the tone for a sustainable future‘.
It will address the capability of organic farming to meet the needs of the world food supply (as supported by more than one recent research study) and what organic practices have to offer to all farming in a future where circumstances are likely to dictate reduced reliance on agricultural chemicals and lower GHG emissions.
