Tolhurst Organic is delighted to announce that it has been shortlisted for this year’s prestigious BOOM Awards (Best of Organic Market Awards). The Hardwick Estate-based business impressed the judges with our stock-free farming system.
We are grateful to customers and friends who have nominated us for the award.
The Soil Association’s BOOM Awards are the UK’s only dedicated organic awards celebrating people, producers, restaurants and brands working to produce food as it should be. This year the BOOMs are set to be bigger and better than ever and Tolhurst Organic has been shortlisted in the Best Organic Farmer sponsored by Yeo Valley category.
More people than ever before are choosing organic – confirmed by recent research from England Marketing which revealed 39 per cent of shoppers buy organic food on a weekly basis. Certified organic means food that has been produced to the very highest standards. It means fewer pesticides, no artificial additives or preservatives, always free range, higher standards of animal welfare and absolutely no GM.
Now in its fifth year of continued growth and worth £2.09 billion, the organic sector has never been healthier.
Soil Association Certification Business Development Director, Clare McDermott said: “The organic market grew a fantastic 7% last year and more and more people are looking for, buying and talking about organic. With hundreds of new and innovative products launched last year alone, the BOOMs give us an opportunity to make some noise about organic and help more people understand the benefits.”
Tolhurst Organic is proud to be one of the companies that are innovating, championing organics and producing food as it should be, so wish us Good Luck!
The winners of the BOOM Awards will be announced at a ceremony in London on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017.
