Twenty-eight participants representing the 15 project partners of the OrganicDataNetwork project for better  European organic market information gathered from October 3-4, 2013 in Montpellier for the fourth project meeting.
The main topics on the agenda were monitoring data quality by means of plausibility checks, the development of an organic database and the implementation of case studies to improve methodology. At the one-and-a-half-day event, participants in the project in various countries explained their approach and their proposals for developing a common strategy for collecting market data. The aim of the project is the publication in the autumn of 2014 of a handbook that will help to harmonize data collection across the whole of Europe.

All participants in the event in Montpellier were extremely pleased with the discussions, the outcomes and the organization. At the conclusion of the meeting, Martin Cottingham, who compiles the annual organic market report for the UK for the Soil Association, said: “This was the most useful of these meetings so far, because we’re getting into the deliverables of the project.”
