UK organic food market hits £1.6bn

Organic food sales have doubled over the past six years and shoppers’ rising demand for healthier foods means fast growth should continue, a report out today says.

Around £1.6bn was spent on organic goods last year, up from £800m in 2000, according to Datamonitor. The market analysts said concerns over safety and health were some of the main reasons why people decide to go pesticide-free. As awareness of health and environmental issues gathers steam, Datamonitor predicts the UK market will hit £2.7bn by 2010.
