Initiatives

The Organic Research Centre was instrumental, with its farmer partners, in the establishment some time ago now of two new initiatives:

Organic Seed Producers Ltd (OSP), which is an offshoot of ORC's Seeds for the Future project. Contact Roger Wyartt +44 (0)1359 270410

Organic Arable Marketing Company Ltd (OAMG) established to put some stability into the organic grain market, provide farmers with some control of their market and to provide links between OAS and farmers and the market. Contact Andrew Trump telephone +44 (0)1242 890003 for more information.

ORC is a shareholder in both of these independent companies in collaboration with existing OAS clients. ORC has strong links with many of the key players in the UK organic market.

ORC worked with its farmer partners to establish other initiatives such as:

Organic Milk Suppliers Cooperative (OMSCo) +44 (0)1934 750244

Organic Resource Agency Ltd (ORA) - an offshoot of ORC's research programme Contact +44 (0)1684 585423
