[25 JUN 99] RASE PRESS RELEASE
Leading Supermarkets Support Organic Centre

Safeways, Sainsburys and Waitrise are offering financial support to the organic Food & Farming Centre at this year’s 150th Royal Show to be held on 5-8 July at the National Agricultural centre, Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire.

The Organic Food and Farming Centre provides a one-stop-shop information centre where leading organisations will assist farmers to assess whether organic production is the right option for them.

Charlotte Mitchell, Waitrose Organic Consultant, says:

"Waitrose, the current Supermarket of the Year, now stocks over 400 organic lines, double that of a year ago. This has been possible through a number of initiatives, in particular, the Waitrose Farm Assistance Scheme, which has lead the way in securing a wider choice and better availability of quality organic produce."

David Storrar, Director of Exhibitions at the Royal Agricultural Society of England, organisers of the Royal Show, says:

"People think farmers over-react but they are searching for options in a very difficult market place. The Organic Food and Farming Centre will present the pros and cons of organic farming to help farmers decide if it is option for them."

NOTES:

Organic Food & Farming Centre participating organisations include; ADAS, Elm Farm Research Centre, MAFF, Soil Association, Broomfield College of Agriculture, Eastbrook Farm, Hi-Peak Organic Foods, Institute of Arable Crops Research, W & H marriage & Sons Ltd, Organic Farm Food Ltd, Organic Farmers and Growers Ltd, Organic Livestock Marketing Co-op, Organic Milk Suppliers Co-op, Triodos Bank, Trascoed Research Farm, Aberdeen University Centre for Organic, FLAME Engineering and the Welsh Institute of Rural Studies.
