Positive results for organic products in France

In 2007, four of ten French consumed products from organic origin, a study of “Baromètre 2007 de l’ Agence Bio” revealed. 78% of parents demand organics for their children to make sure they grow up healthy – but especially for the benefit of the environment. Brands of dedicated supermarkets, but also traditional stores, offer certified products, which are now available everywhere. This confirms their success among consumers in France, reports the Italian organization AIAB. Organics are no longer a niche market, but have become a habit in the country. Consumers eat organics for the authenticity of products, but not only, as those who argue environmental sustainability as a main reason for the continuous growth confirm. In 2003, 79% of organic consumers stated they considered the environment as a factor – today there are 90%.Regarding economy, the industry had an average growth of 10% per year within the past five years. In 2007, the turnover for organic products in France was 1.9 billion Euros. But despite this, organics only have a share of 1.2% of the market for food products in France.
