Organic Foods Market Trends

  • Increasing knowledge of the advantages of organic food intake for health is driving the market growth

Growing public awareness of the health advantages of consuming organic food is one of the main reasons propelling market expansion. The shift in consumer purchasing behaviour is expected to increase sales of organic foods and beverages. The market is expanding in part due to customers' growing preference for non-GMO products. Even though organic food is more expensive than non-organic alternatives and the global GDP fell by the most in decades in 2020, sales of organic food increased. Out of all the health and wellness categories, packaged foods and drinks that are organic grew at the fastest rate. Beginning in 2020, consumers changed their eating and drinking habits during the COVID-19 period when eateries were closed and home cooking replaced eating out. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) reports that German customers bought 22% more organic goods during the same period.

Due to customer demand for better overall health and increased awareness of the negative effects of synthetic substances, the market for organic ingredients has increased over the past few years. Due to the usage of synthetic chemicals in plants and animals, such as pesticides and antibiotics, conventional meals come with a number of health hazards. The production of organic goods has increased as a result of the rising demand. According to recent USDA projections, approximately 39 million acres, or 16 million hectares, will be under organic agricultural management in 2020. Government involvement in educating consumers about the distinction between products with fraudulent labels and genuine ones has also aided in the growth of the sector as a whole. Worldwide regulations prohibiting the use of chemicals, pesticides, growth hormones, and other synthetic compounds have also been established by governments. Additionally, the National Horticulture Mission (NHM) of the Indian government provides incentives to growers of organic food products in order to promote organic cultivation. In India, farmers are being awarded Rs. 10,000 per hectare for up to four hectares of land per beneficiary, as well as Rs. 5.00 lakh for a group of farmers covering 50 hectares of land.

The amount of essential minerals in the body increases when organic goods are consumed. Due to the increased sugar content in the produce compared to conventional food goods, there is a rising desire for organic food items as they aid to provide a superior flavour. The organic fruit products have a higher nutritional value. The use of organic food products lowers all heart-related health concerns because they don't include hydrogenated fat. When compared to other food products, the organic food products have a higher antioxidant concentration. Pregnant women who consume standard food products run the risk of harming their unborn children since the placenta can pass harmful chemicals from the mother to the child. Future health problems for the baby may result from it as well. The toxins are also linked to a number of birth abnormalities, such as autism. Thus, driving the Organic Foods market revenue.
