The organic food market has plenty of critics and doubters, but the md of organic baby and children's food producer Organix is fighting back.

In our exclusive podcast, Anna Rosier, md of Organix, argued it’s time the mainstream media stopped knocking organic and turned its fire on issues such as artificial colourings instead.

She also explained why the organic children’s food sector is booming, while other organic markets have slumped.

Lizzie Vann

With turnover hitting the £38M in the past year, there’s no doubt the firm has come along way since it was set up in a Christchurch “shack” by former boss Lizzie Vann in 1992.

But did its 2008 acquisition by the multi-national Hero group water-down the company’s organic ethos and beliefs? Or does the firm’s passions still burn as brightly as ever? Have a listen and decide for yourself.

Also, look out for our feature on Anna and Organix in the October edition of our sister title Food Manufacture.
