OF&G chief exec in Radio 4 debate

Date Published: 14/10/2008

The Chief Executive of Organic Farmers & Growers, Richard Jacobs, can be heard on this week’s Radio 4 Food Programme in debate with the Soil Association’s Patrick Holden.

In a refreshing departure from recent somewhat hysterical reporting on the state of the organic market in various publications, the Food Programme took a realistic look at pressures and realities facing the sector.

Martin Humphrey, director of Humphrey Feeds, was heard explaining the issues around obtaining organic ingredients for his products.

Following this was a studio debate with Richard and Patrick, in which Richard injected a large dose of common sense regarding the current state of the industry and the continuing support of shoppers.
