Unión Europea: tendencias y mercado de alimentos orgánicos (en inglés)
While the EU market of organic agri-food products continues its growth, organic imports remained stable between 2018 and 2019. Looking more in detail into import categories, some shift occurred: a decrease in imports of organic cereals (including rice) and oilseeds (excluding soyabeans) was counterbalanced by increased imports of tropical fruit, oilcakes, soyabeans and sugar.
Changes were also observed in the ranking of the main trading partners with Colombia and Kazakhstan entering the top ten suppliers of organic products to the EU. The main importing EU Member States in 2019 were the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Germany.
The present brief describes EU28 data on EU imports of agri-food products in 2019 and reflects on key developments compared to 2018. It characterises these imports in terms of origin and destination, as well as product categories.
