These, says the company, will require both innovation and the development of new solutions.

A Campden BRI seminar, “Organic cereals: supply chain opportunities and challenges”, is to be held on 30 June. Organised in collaboration with the Soil Association, Campden BRI says it will help develop further understanding of challenges facing a production system that forms an important part of sustainable agriculture. It will contain a mix of presentations and practical industry case studies that highlight developments in the organic sector. The content will include:

 The current state of the organic markets

 Legislative constraints

 The retail and industry perspective

 Organic products and the marketplace

 Organic cereals and the organic brand

“We are excited to be jointly hosting this event, the first of its kind, with Campden BRI,” said Lee Holdstock, Trade Relations Manager at the Soil Association. “We are constantly looking for new ways to help grow the organic market and we hope that this event will provide real insights into both barriers to and opportunity for growth in the sector.”
