Organic products retail in France - statistics & facts
In 1952, the AFRAN association (Association Française pour la Recherche de l'Alimentation Normale) linked the organic degeneration of the population to the "normal" quality of food, highlighting health risks caused by the current diet. Since then, an increasing number of individuals and associations criticize chemical-based agricultural practices and their harmful consequences on food and health, and more natural alternatives are gaining popularity. Organic food has experienced significant growth in recent years, and in 2019, it represented more than six percent of the French food market, compared to less than two the previous decade.
