Objective
  • To Better Understand the Current Demand Situation
    in the Organic Arable Sector

    UK.
  • Asked to complete a questionnaire.
  • Usage 2007 season.
  • Usage 2008 season (to 31st January 2009).
  • Project use for the rest of 2008 season.
  • Projected use for 2009 season.

The Survey
  • Also asked a number of qualitative questions
  • Their experiences.
  • Criteria for buying.
  • Other crops.
  • Information could be supplied to us anonymously
    if required.

6
Results.
  • 10 out of 24 Responded.
  • Information on feed grain usage.
  • 7 provided information on 2007 and 2008.
  • 1 provided information on 2009.
  • Information on milling grain usage.
  • 1 provided information.
  • Only analysed and presenting information on feed
    grains in 2007 and 2008.

7
2007 by respondents usage
  • Organic market estimated 250,000 tonnes per annum
    used.
  • Survey accessed 75,000 tonnes.
  • Accessed approximately 1/3 of the market (tonnes
    and players)
  • Most in demand grains in 2007.
  • Wheat (40).
  • Sunflower expeller (12).
  • Lucerne (9).
  • Soya expeller (7).

  • 24,000 tonnes.
  • Feed wheat (29).
  • Peas (12).
  • Sunflower expeller (10).
  • Feed barley (9).

10
Usage 2008 by respondents (to 31/01/09)
11
Usage 2008 (Feb-Aug)
  • Predicted 40,000 tonnes more used before the end
    of the year.
  • Total 65,000 tonnes.
  • 10,000 tonnes down on 2007.
  • Feed wheat (46).
  • Sunflower expeller (11).
  • Soya expeller (8).
  • Peas (7).

Usage by respondents 2008

Rank in importance of purchasing decision

Other Findings
  • Comments about quality were varied.
  • Quality OK.
  • Quality variable.
  • Needs to be cleaner.
  • Would source more UK products if it were
    available.
  • Wheat and other cereals.
  • Alternative protein sources to imported soya.

15
Discussion Conclusions
  • This survey was undertaken to gain more
    information on the supply of organic grains in
    the UK.
  • Information provided is commercially sensitive.
  • Not successful for milling grains.
  • More successful with feed grains.
  • Future predictions outside of the current year
    were not forthcoming.
  • Commercially sensitive?
  • Unknown with changing organic market?

16
Discussion Conclusions
  • Wheat is the most important grain.
  • Followed by other grains and grain bi-products
    some UK sources and others imported
  • There is a wish to source more UK produced
    product.
  • Concern about real or perceived quality
    deficiencies in UK produce.
  • A want and a need for a replacement for soya (and
    other non-UK produced products ie sunflower
    expeller)

17
Discussion Conclusions
  • More work is needed to develop varieties and/or
    production systems for protein crops that can be
    produced organically in the UK.
  • More robust and representative market information
    needed.
  • Important for the sector as a whole to have such
    information on both supply and demand.
  • Would allow for better business planning and the
    sustainable development of the sector.

18
Caveat Thanks
  • This survey has allowed a brief glimpse into the
    sector. The results are from on a relatively
    small sample of a small industry so need to be
    taken with some caution.
  • But it does represent trends and overall position
  • We would like to thank all those who kindly
    provided information to us.
