There are two questions for the consumer to ponder - is organic food good (ie does it taste better than non-organic food)? And is it good for you (ie is there a qualitative nutritional difference)?
To take the second question first, the track record of "conventional" farming does not inspire confidence, whatever Mr Miliband may say. Perhaps he relies too much on the advice of scientists, who don't care about taste, or special advisers, who see agriculture as just another industry.
