If you’re a fan of organic food options, here’s cause to celebrate: the organic market is simply exploding! We recently reported that one assessment of the organic food market projected growth of 14 percent through 2018. Now, another report, titled Organic Food & Beverages Market Analysis and Segment Forecasts to 2020, projects even more of a growth — a nearly 16 percent skyrocket of the organic food and beverages market by 2020 — meaning organic food sales will reach an estimated U.S. $211.44 billion by that time!
Grand View Research, the originators of the new report, writes, “Growing adoption of organic food & beverages owing to associated health benefits and eco-friendly characteristics is expected to drive demand over the next six years.”
The firm also asserts that “regulatory support for organic farming” is also projected to have a positive impact on the organic food market because both supply and product quality will see gains.
The report posits that all areas of organic products will see growth, from organic tea to non-dairy beverages. You can read the full press release on the report here.
As supporters of true organic food production, we’re thrilled to see such a rise projected. We choose organic whenever possible to save our bodies from ingesting GMOs, pesticides, and unnecessary chemicals — and, whenever you can, we think you should too!
