As part of the OrganicDataNetwork project (work package 2), the project partners have now developed a survey to ask various organisations involved in organic market data about the type of data they collect, and their approaches to data collection, analysis and publication.The work is lead by the project partner Organic Research Centre - Elm Farm, UK, (www.organicresearchcentre.com)

This survey will give a better idea of who collects organic market data and how they go about it. The results will feed into many other aspects of the project.

The questionnaire has already been sent out to a large number of data collectors.

Those that have not yet been contacted but feel they would have interesting information for the survey, then please contact Catherine Gerrard or Anja Viehweger of the Organic Research Centre Elm Farm. The details of the survey will then be sent to you.
