According to the Organic Trade Association’s latest Industry Survey, market volatility and pantry loading are decreasing and industry growth is shifting back toward historic trends in the US.
After an unprecedented year marked by pantry loading and supply shortages, the Organic Trade Association’s (OTA) latest Organic Industry Survey shows that consumers returned to more stable, buy-as-you-need shopping patterns in 2021. Between 2020 and 2021, organic sales surpassed $63 billion, with $1.4 billion (2 per cent) total growth over the year.
Food sales, which comprise over 90 percent of organic sales, rose to $57.5 billion (roughly 2 per cent growth), and non-food sales reached $6 billion in sales (7 per cent growth).
