Orgánicos/EE.UU: ventas totales de alimentos retail superaron los 47 mil millones de dólares
A new research report from Rabobank found retail organic food sales in the U.S. hit $47.9 billion last year. But, even though new sales records are expected «for the foreseeable future,» growth in the space has moderated.
While organic food sales increased by an average of 10% per year between 2010 and 2016, that pace has cooled to 6% for the past two years, according to the report. Still, assuming a 5% to 6% growth rate annually, sales could reach almost $60 billion by 2022.
The top organic category last year continued to be fresh produce, making up 36% of the total spent on organics, the report said. However, the 5.6% growth in fruits and vegetables in 2018 was slightly lower than that of the organic food category as a whole.
