Soil Association Annual Conference
This event is a public debate on how organic food and farming can provide a mechanism for the challenges confronting the food industry, including climate change, health inequalities and reshaping the economy. Panellists include the Rt Hon Caroline Spelman, secretary of state for Defra, Peter Melchett, Soil Association policy director and Mark Price, managing director of Waitrose, among many others. Topics of possible interest to bakers include a study on the organic marketplace, how organic buying groups and co-ops are changing the way consumers purchase and how food culture and diet can be changed.
