Organic sales double in six years

The Guardian

By Katie Allen

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 go pesticide-free. As awareness of health and environmental issues gathers steam, Datamonitor predicts the UK market will hit £2.7bn by 2010.
