Organic food market in France - statistics & facts

Organic farming is an agricultural method of food production and processing which considers consequences for the environment. As a result, the use of certain pesticides and artificial fertilizers is forbidden. Likewise, meat, eggs, and dairy products must come from livestock raised under specific living conditions to be considered organic. These are only a few of the requirements needed to obtain one of the special organic certifications which France, like many other countries, requires for producers to be able to market their food as “organic.”

The population’s growing concerns about their health and the environment, as well as the overall positive perception of organic foods, are essential factors behind the demand for organic products. Incidentally, this demand 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 new crises such as the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic arising, more and more people are making sustainability a priority.
