More organic land needed for growing organic market

Soil Association Certification’s Organic Market Report 2022 reveals the UK organic market is now worth a record £3.05 billion after a 5.2% growth in sales in 2021, with shoppers spending almost £60 million on organic products every week. However, figures released by FiBL this week shows that the European market, as a whole, is growing even faster and reached a record high in 2020. It increased by 15% and reached €52.0 billion, the highest growth rate in the past decade. The organic farmed area continued to grow, too, increasing by 5.3% in the European Union, as compared to the UK which increased by just 0.8% in the same period (Defra statistics).
