Abstract

In conclusion, the Welsh organic sector continues to grow and, despite media
speculation, the majority of produce is still being sold into organic markets, with high conventional livestock prices acting as a buffer to organic beef and sheep markets. Large numbers of producers converting will extend the Welsh organic sector, and the time taken for their conversion should be used by industry stakeholders and producers themselves to develop existing and new markets. Despite the uncertainty due to the credit crunch, Welsh organic producers can be optimistic. There is potential for markets to be developed both for existing producers and to absorb sales from newly converted holdings as their produce
comes to the marketplace.
