Workshop will help horticultural businesses through tough times

Organic Centre Wales and the Organic Growers Alliance are organising a workshop for organic horticultural businesses in Wales to help map out a way forward for the sector. Recent work has highlighted the difficult conditions currently faced by businesses right through the supply chain. The many have highlighted the need to change to stay viable.

Four clear themes have emerged, which will form the basis of the workshop which are: Finding new markets; working together more; presenting and selling our products better; and working more closely with local communities.

Tony Little, one of the workshop organisers, said 'This meeting comes at a critical time. Many businesses are struggling on the back of a a series of poor growing seasons in recent years, a dip in the organic market and competition from home grown produce. The main aim of the workshop is to come up with plan of action to get us through this difficult period, and everyone involved in organic horticulture in Wales needs to play a part in that'.

Friday 3 December 2010, 10:00 - 5:00, Centre For Alternative Technology (CAT), Machynlleth
