In 2020, the United States generated the largest revenue of organic food in the world with approximately 49.5 million euros. By contrast, the United Kingdom had a revenue of approximately 2.9 million euros.
What constitutes organic food can vary significantly depending on the country and certifier, but it often refers to crops grown without artificial pesticides, genetic modifications, or petroleum-based fertilizers. For meat, dairy, and eggs to be labelled as organic, the animals must be raised on organic feed, given adequate time outdoors, and not be fed growth hormones. In 2019, there were approximately 72 million hectares of organic farmland worldwide. In India alone there were more than one million organic food producers, which amounts to at least five times more producers than in any other country.
