‘Organic’ – perhaps the biggest culinary buzzword of the decade. Chefs, restaurants and foodie bloggers are championing the organic food movement – so much so that in recent years, the concept of ‘going organic’ is no longer seen as hippy-fied or something reserved for the super health-conscious.
Of course the concept of organic food production is not a new one. Before the introduction of chemicals and pesticides, all farming would have been considered organic. But as research continually proves the extent of the harm that can be done to our bodies by the pesticides that pollute the vast majority of fruit and veg in supermarkets, we’re all choosing to steer clear of these nasties.
Whichever way you look at it, organic is becoming a way of life for more and more of us. Best prepare your planters guys… looks like the organic food movement is here to stay.
Organic food sales are set to shoot up
According to the latest Organic Food and Beverages Market in Europe report, analysts have forecast that the organic food and beverage market in Europe will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.79% during 2016 and 2020.
This significant rate of growth could mean that demand for organic food actually outstrips the market’s ability to supply.
Organic food production is based on sustainable agriculture; delivering a lower volume of higher-quality products using manufacturing processes that are environmentally friendly. So if, as analysts predict, we’ll soon be demanding more organic products at a faster rate than European farmers are able to deliver them, we best start thinking of ways to become more self-sufficient and produce our own organic food!
