Organic food
sales approach
$48 billion
Organic food sales in
the United States rose
5.9% in 2018 to reach
$47.9 billion, according
to the 2019 Organic Industry Survey released
May 17 by the Organic
Trade Association. Organic food sales made
up 5.7% of overall U.S.
food sales, which rose
2.3% in 2018.
The overall U.S.
organic market grew
6.3% to $52.5 billion
as non-food sales
increased nearly 11% to
reach $4.6 billion.
Sales of organic fruits
and vegetables made
up 36% of all organic
food sales in 2018, rising 5.6% to $17.4 billion.
Organic fruits and vegetables sales accounted
for nearly 15% of all U.S.
fruits and vegetables
sales in 2018.
A movement toward
milk alternatives

affected sales growth
in the organic dairy
category. A 0.8% sales
increase led to sales of
$6.5 billion in organic
dairy and eggs. Many
millennials have moved
to plant-based foods
and beverages from
livestock-based products, according to the
association.
"Experts said that to
satisfy today's consumer, the importance
of innovation in the
organic dairy sector has
never been greater,"
the association said. "In
2018, industry responded with milk beverages
with increased protein,
more full-fat dairy products, new flavors and
grass-fed products."
