Sustainable Food and Drink – Organic, Fairtrade, Free From, local and more..

Increasingly we seek food and drink that is:

-          good for our health

-          good for the planet

-          produced naturally

So how should your business respond to these challenges? Should you convert to organic, go Fairtrade, explore Free From or start sourcing locally? Could you be part of the Slow Food movement or is raw food the way forward for you? Is being all-natural enough for your business? Simon Wright of OF+ Consulting works with manufacturers, brand-holders and retailers to help them answer these questions and develop and market products that meet contemporary concerns.

Through the OF+ Consulting website you can get a feel for where the sustainable food sector has come from, where it is now and where it is going.
