Who ensures that restaurants who claim to use organic produce aren't lying?
Trading Standards would check that restaurants claiming to be organic are not lying. If the restaurant was already certified as organic, then they are subjected to their usual annual inspection, so we would check. If the restaurant was certified as organic with the Soil Association, we would check. But if they weren't certified but they were selling some meals as organic, then Trading Standards could check that as well.
