In Austria, the share of organic goods in the retail sector is expected to have risen to 10 percent for the first time in the first half of the year. This was announced last Saturday by the Austrian Minister of Agriculture Elisabeth Köstinger (ÖVP) citing information from the new Roll-AMA analysis, as written in a report from derstandard.de. According to Der Standard, 97 euros were spent by an average Austrian household for organic fresh products in the first six months of this year. This represents an increase of 17 percent compared to 2019, when sales for the entire year amounted to over two billion euros.
As the online newspaper further writes, milk and eggs, but also potatoes, vegetables and fruit yogurt were in great demand. In the last half year almost every Austrian bought an organic product at least once. According to the article, the complete analysis of the AMA will be published this week.
