The Organic Ambitions: Scotland’s Organic Action Plan 2016 – 2020 was unveiled on 27th January.
‘Outlining an Organic Vison for 2020, the Action Plan identifies the key challenges facing the development of Scottish organic food and the actions required to address them. Key to the strategy is spreading knowledge about the economic, environmental and social value of Scottish organic produce, increasing the strength of the whole supply chain and boosting skills through knowledge of best practice and training. Building resilience by strengthening the ability of the sector to conserve and enhance Scotland’s natural capital will also be vital. Work begins early this year on a programme to deliver these desired outcomes.’ Farming UK.
The Farming UK feature includes more detail and aspirations for the plan from members of the Scottish Organic Forum and linked organisations. The plan is funded by the Scottish Government and an executive summary plus downloadable documents can be found on their website.
