European Union and Europe: organic retail sales value from 2004 to 2018

Organic retail sales in 2018 came to approximately 37.4 billion euros in the European Union and 37.4 billion in Europe. In both cases an increase could be observed over the entire period. An annual increase was seen between 2004 and 2018 for both regions with a steep acceleration of growth, beginning around 2014. Retail sales of organic food in Germany amounted to approximately 11 billion in 2018. Second biggest market measured in retail sales was France.

Per capita consumption

Per capita spending on organic food in the EU-28 reached 76.2 euros per person. The highest spending on organic food could be observed in the Alps and in the North of the continent. In Switzerland and Denmark, per capita spending reached 312 euros in 2018. Sweden came in second and third with a spending of 231 euros.

Sales in Germany and the UK

The German market has seen a continuous upward trend in sales since the year 2000 barring only the year 2009. The dip was likely caused by the financial crisis. In contrast, UK sales suffered immensely in 2008 and the following years. The loss in sales was so heavy that the market needed until 2017 to generate more sales than were generated in 2007.
