Organic celebrations held across Australia in October 2011 marked the fourth annual National Organic Week (NOW) from October 1 - 9. NOW is 10 days of targeted media and locally-staged activities designed to increase awareness of the benefits of organic products and farming production systems and accelerate the uptake of these in the wider Australian community and environment.
Presented by the BFA (Biological Farmers of Australia) and the Centre for Organic & Resource Enterprises (CORE), the highlight of the extended week of celebrations was the announcement of the NOW Organic Consumer Choice Awards. The categories for the 2011 NOW Organic Consumer Choice Awards included best Organic Retail Outlet, Organic Shopping Website, Organic Specialist Store, Conventional Supermarket and Organics Market.
For the first time this year NOW had a more participative approach, allowing consumers to vote on the NOW Facebook Page for their favourite Organic Store. Flannerys has been awarded with the Consumer Choice Award for Best Queensland Organic Retail Outlet 2011.
We would like to say a very warm thank you to all of our customers, fans, voters and supporters.
