ISBN: 9781785449352

An Organic Action Plan, developed by industry in close cooperation with the Scottish Government, which reflects the shared agenda for the sector, with actions to be taken forward by all parties interested in growing the organic food and drink supply chain in Scotland.

Executive Summary

The Scottish Organic Forum (SOF) carried out an extensive consultation with over 700 stakeholders to produce this Action Plan. It includes 17 actions under four headline themes (KNOWLEDGE, STRENGTH, SKILLS & RESILIENCE) to be taken forward over the next 5 years.

The Action Plan will encourage growth in the Scottish organic sector which will, in turn, help Scotland address wider challenges such as encouraging biodiversity, tackling climate change through reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving soils and protecting our air and water. It will also add further economic value to the Scottish Food and Drink Sector.
