Out and about with OF&G

Date Published: 19/02/2008

Something we don’t get to do as often as we would like is get face-to-face with our licensees, but it’s by far the best way we have of learning about how we’re doing.

Fancy a beer?So to improve on this we’re trialling a programme of informal local meet-ups when members of our team are on their travels around the country. We’re always on the move, but quite often we’re in and out of an area faster than the proverbial rat up a drainpipe.

But when there’s a bit of breathing space or an overnight stay, we’ll be offering licensees in the area the chance to sit down with us for a drink and a bit of two-way feedback. Whichever member of the team happens to be in your neck of the woods won’t always be our expert in your field, but they will be happy to take your comments and questions back to HQ to be addressed by the right folks.

Kicking us off on this programme, Certification Officer Katie Owens will be in East Lothian on Thursday (Feb 21). We’ve tried to contact as many licensees as we can in the area, but if you haven’t heard from us and would like to meet up with Katie for a drink, chat and to meet some of your fellow licensees, please feel free to drop her line at katie.owens@organicfarmers.org.uk.

Hopefully we’ll see many more of you in this way over the coming months.
