Here's a really nice profile of OF&G licensee, Justin Scale, who is a finalist in the Farmers Weekly Awards for Farm Employer of the Year.
Farm businesses that view people as a valuable asset are the ones that are built to last. Jane King had the privilege of meeting three distinct employers with one big achievement in common – they are all growing fast by creating great places to work

News and views from the world of organics
Introduction
We are the longest-standing organic control body in the UK. We've been inspecting and licensing organic food, farming and other enterprises (cosmetics, storage, catering, etc) for almost two decades.

At OF&G we take pride in offering great service to our licensees and our certification team are all drawn from the agricultural and/or manufacturing sectors, as appropriate.

In more recent years we have begun the inspection and certification of compost as well as the digestate output of anaerobic digestion plants - allowing the finished products to be treated as a product that is a good source of agricultural fertiliser, rather than a waste by-product.

We have our headquarters in Shrewsbury, in the beautiful county of Shropshire, UK, and provide our services throughout Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man.
