Today, more than 40% of the vegetables and 80% of the fruit we buy are imported. The size of the market is increasing as people eat more fruit and vegetables for ethical, health and environmental reasons and this is fuelling a rise in the sales of organic fruit and vegetables. There really can’t be a better time to set up a new growing enterprise. We look at the opportunities that this market offers for new entrants and businesses. Elsewhere we feature an innovative organic banana growing co-op in the Dominican Republic, opportunities offered by food service, growing industrial hemp, the threat of new diseases to livestock, gaining horticultural skills and knowledge and the results of the 2018 organic wheat variety trials.
