The Organic Market Report
The Organic Market is booming
The 2017 Organic Market Report reveals +7.1% growth of organic food and drink in the UK, while the non-organic market continues to decline. We are now in our fifth consecutive year of sales growth for organic products.
The report takes a detailed look at the major reasons for this growth and the sales trends by each channel including supermarkets, independent retailers, home delivery and the foodservice sector. It highlights the consumer trend towards healthy eating and the current influences that are driving sales of organic. The report also covers farming and the opportunities for export and growth internationally. It takes a look at the year ahead, forecasting further sustained growth and the contributory factors to this.
The 2017 Organic Market Report is the most comprehensive report covering the Organic Market in the UK today and is an essential read and reference document for anyone working within the industry selling organic products or assisting businesses in selling organic in the UK.
It’s a positive time for organic as it ticks lots of boxes for consumers. Organic is extremely relevant to trends towards, eating better food, knowing where your food comes from, avoiding pesticides or antibiotics and ‘free from’ diets. Increasingly, we’re seeing consumers choose organic as a shortcut to a healthy lifestyle and this will continue. Despite the uncertainty of Brexit for us all, it brings lots of opportunities too – particularly around export for British organic and more product innovation.Clare McDermott, Business Development Director at Soil Association Certification
