Latest reasons

  • Jessica I'm torn! Choice 1: potatoes, because you can't compete with the flavour when they're organic and they are a Christmas staple. Choice 2: Jerusalem Artichokes because they pack a real punch (in oh so many ways!) but never fail to impress as a pre-dinner nibble if you make them into pakhoras. Flag this comment

  • Tanya MacRae , 43 We are passionate about all things organic, so all our food is carefully sourced and homemade - not only because our eldest little girl is totally allergic to all dairy products, but because as it tastes so delicious and is so much better for our family and the environment! Christmas will be a real treat with rare breed roast beef and yorkshire puddings, plus baked sweet potatoes & carrots, roast parsnips and red potatoes followed by christmas pudding with homemade mince & apple pies - all organic of course! :o) Flag this comment

Celebrity reasons

Sarah Beeny

"The more we support organic products the more accessible they will become – the benefits are so great it’s hard to know where to start."

Bob Flowerdew

"I love organic food, especially when it's my own home grown produce, simply because it tastes so good!"

Alys Fowler

"I love organic because we are just as much a part of nature as a slug and organic systems recognise that we've all got a part to play. It's kinder to the earth and therefore kinder to us to use organic products."

Sara Cox

"With three young children, it’s important that I’m giving them the best to eat. Through buying organic I can rest assured that the food they are eating is natural and good for them."

Zac Goldsmith

"At a time when it’s almost impossible to know if the food we are eating has been produced cleanly and ethically, the one standard we can all trust is organic. That’s why I absolutely back the ‘Why I Love Organic’ campaign and wish it all the success in the world."

Tom Aikens

"I have always loved organic food because of the love of animals and the care they get, which then gives the meat that extra special depth of flavour and quality that is always consistent with what I require."
