Yeo Valley organic desserts
- Write to, or e-mail from their websites, a number of supermarkets to find out about their policy on organic foods.
A few to try include:
- Find out what your parents, friends, teachers or neighbours think about organic foods. What are their views? Do they prefer organic? Are they prepared to pay the price? If not, what would encourage them to do so?
- Is eating organic a sustainable choice for the consumer? Carry out a survey in your local area to find out how easy it is to find a good range and choice of organic foods. Compare the cost of organic foods, e.g. cheese, yogurt, milk, bread, fruits and vegetables, with their non-organic equivalents. Produce a short report summarising your findings in answer to this question.
- Carry out an organic tasting of one or more foods, e.g. cheese, yogurt, milk, bread, fruits, vegetables. Compare them with their non-organic equivalent for taste, texture, appearance and aroma. Produce a table to show your results and explain your overall conclusions in one or two sentences.
- Would more organic foods be a better thing, and for whom? Organise a class debate to argue the case for and against organic foods. Carry out some background research and decide whether you are for or against organic foods. Make a list of the key points you want to make in the debate and the arguments you are going to use to back them up.
- Look at the Yeo Valley magazine advert. What marketing techniques do you think are being used and why? How effective are they? In what other ways could organic values be promoted?
- Design and make a batch of fruit yogurt for children, using organic ingredients. Produce a table showing the source of each ingredient. Produce a visual flow chart to show the production process for making your yogurt. Include any safety, hygiene and quality checks that you would need to make.
- Design and make an organic product that represents good quality at an affordable price
