To ask the Scottish Government, in light of its commitment at page 26 of the SNP manifesto, what plans it has to increase the supply and demand for organic food.
Answered by: Fergus Ewing 15 September 2016
We are working closely with a range of stakeholders to take forward the actions contained within ‘Organic Ambitions’, Scotland’s Next Organic Action Plan, that was published in January 2016. As part of this, we recently launched the new Organic Ambitions Fund to support the delivery of the plan and, specifically, to strengthen the organic supply chain and increase the demand for organic food.
