The article reports on the refutation of organic farmers against claims that consumer demand for organic food in Great Britain has been dropping as a result of the credit crunch. Richard Hampton, Omsco sales and marketing director, said the economic situation had not altered consumer demand for organic dairy products. However, he said the number of farmers converting to organic had slowed as the return from conventional farming has increased, while cost and supplies of organic feed made organic production less attractive.
