Changing the future of food and farming

Future for Organic Production in Wales

Event Date : November 15, 2013

10:00 to 13:30 The Pavilion, Withybush Showground, Haverfordwest SA62 4BW

Farming Connect and Organic Centre Wales (OCW) are collaborating to host this open meeting (one of three across Wales) to discuss the future of organic production in Wales. The meeting aims to provide producers with up to date information on the organic market and the direction of future organic policy in Wales, coinciding with the launch of the Welsh Government’s public consultation on organic support options.

These meetings follow a series of conversations with stakeholders which took place this summer with Organic Centre Wales as part of a process of reviewing future policy options. The events will provide producers with the opportunity to hear about and debate the Welsh Government’s proposals that have resulted from this process.

Susanne Padel from the Organic Research Centre or Finn Cottle from the Soil Association (depending on venue) will provide an update on the organic market, including recent signs of growth in demand. Nic Lampkin will provide an overview of the new CAP framework and the proposed organic policy support for Wales. The proposals will then be debated by a panel including organic farmers and growers.

The local Farming Connect Facilitator will be Jamie McCoy

Lunch will be provided but please book your space
