Global Sales of Organic Food & Drink Approaching $40 billion
Exceptionally high market growth rates are pushing global organic food & drink sales towards US $40 billion this year. With demand outpacing supply, a number of regions are experiencing supply shortages.

Undersupply is most evident in the North American region where empty retailer shelves have become the norm for some product categories. Several European countries are also experiencing supply shortages this year as consumer demand for organic foods has escalated. The organic meat & dairy sectors are the most adversely affected with imports coming into both regions from Latin America and Australasia.

Fresh produce is the leading organic product category, comprising a third of global revenues. Fruit & vegetables like apples, oranges, carrots and potatoes are typical entry points for consumers buying organic products. Their fresh nature appeals to consumers seeking healthy & nutritious foods. Dairy products and beverages are the next most important organic product categories.
