Other significant factors to this success are general health concerns, combined with an overall positive perception of organic foods. The demand for organic products has been increasing consistently since the turn of the century, with French households’ consumption of organic products more than doubling in the last five years. Most purchased, and mainly in hyper and supermarkets, are organic fruits, vegetables, and dairy products.
Naturally, as the demand for these products has been increasing, so have production efforts. For instance, the number of organic farms and hectares of land dedicated to organic farming have continuously been going up, with no sign of stopping anytime soon. Indeed, with climate change showing no sign of slowing down and crises such as the ongoing coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, more and more people are choosing to make sustainability a priority.
