Research Highlights:

European sales of organic and fair trade fresh produce exceeded the EUR 5 billion (US $7.5 billion) mark for the first time in 2007. High market growth rates are because of the rise in ethical consumerism.

Fair trade fruit & vegetables are reporting the fastest growth, with sales almost doubling last year. High growth is occurring as retailers make pledges to market only fair trade products. Most developments have been in the UK where two leading supermarkets have converted certain fruit lines entirely to fair trade. About a quarter of all banana sales in the UK are now fair trade.

Organic products remain more popular, with organic vegetables now comprising over 5% of all vegetable sales in northern European countries. The market share has already exceeded 10% in some countries like Switzerland and Sweden. The organic fruit market is reporting higher growth however, as more tropical and exotic varieties come into the market.

The organic fresh produce industry continues to be dogged by supply shortages, with European production not keeping pace with demand. Organic farmland is even declining in some countries because rising prices of agricultural products are discouraging farmers to convert to organic practices. Supermarkets are developing global supply chains to overcome supply issues, causing organic products to come into the region from almost every continent.
