From Mr Robert Hadaway.

Sir, Lucy Kellaway’s witty column about her corporate lunch danced across our consciousness much as her lunchtime conversation no doubt does (“UBS’s silly menu leaves a bad taste in the mouth”, February 6). But there was one aside I really can’t let her get away with.

Organic is not a scam, though it has surely been used as one, but so has Christianity, motherhood and psychiatry to name but a few. Ms Kellaway confuses the principle with the application. It is the public and their slavering servants, the supermarkets, that need labels. Many of the people who tend their land and animals under this label do so driven by a desire to treat both with kindness. She seems to have missed the point.
