Organic market continues to grow as interest in ‘healthy food’ increases

The organic market has expanded, seeing growth of 4 per cent in the 52 weeks to July 1, according to figures from Neilson.

 

The market is now worth £2 billion, with organic produce stocked in more than 8,000 stores nationwide.

 

Liz Bowles, SA head of farming, said: “It is a positive time for organic, with strong market growth and continued Common Agricultural Policy payments helping ensure more stability for farmers.

 

“The demand for organic food is nearing an all-time high, and with ever more research showing the potential benefits of organic, the uplift in demand for organic produce comes as no surprise.”

 

She added SA was expecting figures to improve again during its Organic September promotion, with organic farmers and growers encouraged to speak with customers and showcase the benefits of organic farming.
