Join us in celebrating Organic September

Tuesday 12th September 2023

The year is flying by, can you believe it’s Organic September?

Organic September is a special month for Yeo Valley Organic as it’s when we can celebrate and recognise the hard work and dedication that goes into organic farming and producing our delicious organic products.

This year’s Organic September campaign, which is organised by the Soil Association and the Organic Trade Board, is focused on ‘Organic is climate action’, highlighting that organic can help find solutions for the climate, nature and health crises and supporting a more sustainable future. What’s more, it’s easy to get involved by simply “making one small swap to organic” on your next visit to the shops. Even the smallest choice towards embracing organic can have a positive impact on our planet!

2023 also marks the 50th anniversary of organic certification in the UK. In 1973, an accreditation scheme was launched, allowing farmers to gain certification proving they don’t use harmful chemicals in their growing or production methods. It’s something that’s been going on for half a century, but it couldn’t be more relevant today.

In celebration of Organic September, be on the lookout for stacks of exciting new content across our channels. Plus, we have a superb selection (if we say so ourselves) of engaging events taking place, from September Specials to Best of Both Days, and even a Yeo-ga brunch, it’s all going on here.

To commemorate Organic September, we sat down with a cuppa to find out what Organic September means to a few of the team here at Yeo HQ….

Why is Organic September important to you?
I think it’s a great way to celebrate the effort that goes into producing anything organic. Everyone at Yeo Valley Organic works incredibly hard to bring our delicious products to consumers’ fridges!

I also think working with nature is incredibly important, as the news can be very doom and gloom at the moment, It’s great knowing that Yeo Valley Organic is helping to combat climate change with different methods like solar panels, reducing our plastic, and farming organically.

Do you know any interesting facts or benefits of organic?
On average, plant, insect and bird life is 50% more abundant on organic farms.

Do you have a favourite Yeo Valley Organic product?
I love using Super Thick in my morning smoothie for breakfast, but I think my favourite product has to be the Salted Caramel ice cream, what a treat!

Why is Organic September important to you?

Organic September matters to me because it’s all about going natural and making greener choices. It reminds us to support sustainable farming methods that are kinder to the environment and ultimately to ourselves. I feel its important that people aware of ways in which we can ensure a healthier planet through adopting organic practices.

What inspires you to buy organic products?

I choose organic products because I want healthier, chemical-free food, and I care about our planet. Going organic fits my lifestyle, making me feel good about what I eat and how it impacts the environment.

Do you have a favourite Yeo Valley Organic product?

I couldn’t chose just one product. One would have to be our Natural yogurt, I eat it for breakfast most days and nothing can match it. The other would definitely have to be our Salted Caramel Ice Cream, It’s easily the best Ice Cream I have ever tasted!

What does Organic September mean to you?
Organic September is all about spreading the word and sharing the benefits of organic to the masses.

What Yeo Valley Organic recipe do you enjoy making?
I love the slow braised Lamb Penne Ragu. I do all the prep then pop it into the oven and go for a dog walk, then by the time I’m back it’s nearly done.

Do you know any fun facts about organic farming?
Did you know that organic fruit and veg have been found to be more flavourful than conventionally grown ones? Chemicals can taint the taste of conventionally grown produce.
