With Organic September upon us, JAM is joining in the celebrations and attempting to go organic this month.
Organic September is the Soil Association’s celebration of all things organic. The message is to promote organic food, farming and lifestyle and to encourage shoppers to try organic products – from food and drink, to health and beauty products, household goods, clothing and accessories.
Over the course of the month, Jammers will be swapping some conventional products for organic and helping to spread the word about the benefits of organic.
We’ll be on the lookout for organic products to try at lunchtime, to cook in the evening, organic hand creams and other cosmetics, cleaning products, as well as clothing and accessories.
JAM’s client, EHL Ingredients, has reported a surge in sales of its organic food ingredients for the second year running. It’s herbs and spices are proving popular among its consumer base of food manufacturers, bakers, health food stores, wholesalers and caterers as they wise up to the virtues of organic foods.
We’ve had lots of fantastic coverage for the news in the food trade media. Have a read of one piece on Foodnavigator.com to find out more.
So why not celebrate Organic September with us and make just one small change this month? Let us know of any great organic products you’d like us try or tell about your favourite organic purchases.
JAM’s organic shopping list:
• Snack bars
• Hand cream
• Lip balm
