Soil Association Announces Organic Award Winners

"Winners of the Soil Association Organic Awards 2008 were announced yesterday by ethical living and environmental journalist Lucy Siegle at the Natural & Organic Products Annual Industry Awards in London. [1] This year saw a record number of entrants for the awards across every category particularly for the Organic Beauty and Bodycare Products.

Lucy Siegle commented on the awards saying,
“We’ve had a fantastically dynamic mix of organic winners this year. They include a couple of extremely well known brands, Abel & Cole and Neal's Yard Remedies, some relatively new kids on the block and some stalwarts such as Infinity Foods. This range demonstrates how established and secure the organic movement is. From pubs to body scrubs and on-trend summer dresses, there are credible alternatives to the horribly homogenised high street consumerist experience - alternatives that also leave a lighter footprint. This is brilliant news for a growing movement of organic consumers who like to shop ethically.”
