Millennials, Hispanics help
drive new category growth
ORGANIC PRODUCTS IN GENERAL HAVE BEEN AVAILABLE
FOR DECADES but they're more accessible than they've ever
been the past few years, according to The Nielsen Co.
As their popularity continues to steadily grow, organics are no
longer a fad but an "age-old growth driver that's here to stay," said
an end-of-year 2018 Nielsen organics report.
Millennials spent 14% more on organic products in 2018 than
they did the previous year, and Hispanic shoppers increased their
purchases of organic products more than any other ethnic group,
spending more than 13% more compared to the previous year,
Nielsen said.

Organic fruit sales have been experiencing double digit growth
year after year, says Roger Pepperl, marketing director for Stemilt
Growers LLC, Wenatchee, Washington.
"Organic apples have grown to the point that they are 10% of all
apple sales already, and growth is still occurring near 10% annually," he says. "Millennial parents will be a huge market in the near
future as their young children reach the 4-to-5-year age."
Chris Ford, organics and foodservice category manager for The
Oppenheimer Group, Vancouver, British Columbia, says the company recently introduced 1-pound clamshells of organic Zespri
SunGold yellow-flesh kiwifruit grown in small volumes in Italy.
"SunGold originated in New Zealand and is enjoying exciting
demand and increased distribution year-on-year," he says.
Jim Grabowski, director of
marketing for Well-Pict Inc.,
Watsonville, California, says the
company supplies premium,
proprietary organic strawberries
year-round, in 1- and 2-pound
clamshells.
Traditionally, he said 1-pound
clamshells have been the most
popular, but the company has seen
a rising demand for the 2-pound
Stemilt's Lil Snapper
kids-sized apples, which
option.

come in a resealable bag,
have seen solid growth,
according to the company.
