The UK’s only co-operative organic certification body has launched a new award for organic businesses in the Scottish food and farming sectors for 2017.
The new SOPA Award for Organic Excellence aims to celebrate innovation, best practice and outstanding business achievement within the organic sector in Scotland. The award is open to all Scottish-based organically certified businesses from the farming and food and drink sectors.
The prize rewards excellence in Scottish organic food and farming, and the judges will be seeking successes coming from approaches to organic management that are extra-ordinary, above and beyond the norm, and striving for the best that can be achieved in an organic business based in Scotland.
Specifically, the judging panel will be looking for innovative approaches to the organic farming or food and drink sector in Scotland such as unique management practices within each business, attention to detail, exciting marketing initiatives and new product developments.
SOPA (Scottish Organic Producers Association) has led the Scottish organic sector since 1988, operating as a member co-operative representing more organic businesses in Scotland than any other organisation.
The SOPA Award of Organic Excellence sheds light on outstanding achievements, encouraging new concepts of management to maximise quality production within the organic standards.
