BOOM time for pro­duc­ers

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - FARMING -

Or­ganic farm­ers and food pro­duc­ers are in­vited to en­ter the UK’s Best of Or­ganic Mar­ket (BOOM) awards.

The awards are open to all or­ganic pro­duc­ers and busi­nesses across a range of cat­e­gories in­clud­ing fresh pro­duce, dairy, meat and box schemes, and judg­ing will be done purely on taste and qual­ity.

The Best Or­ganic Farmer award, which is open for nom­i­na­tions from in­dus­try fig­ures as well as the pub­lic, will recog­nise a farmer who made an ex­cep­tional com­mit­ment to or­ganic in 2018 through the ways they farm their own land, or on a larger scale through driv­ing in­no­va­tion and change in the sec­tor.

Judges in­clude food writ­ers, chefs and blog­gers.

The com­pe­ti­tion is run by Soil As­so­ci­a­tion Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, the UK’s largest or­ganic cer­ti­fi­ca­tion body, and en­tries close on Fe­bru­ary 28, with judg­ing tak­ing place be­tween April 30 and May 3, ahead of an awards night on June 26.

The awards are open to all or­ganic busi­nesses.
