Organic Diet And Lifestyle
Public opinion favors organic and naturally produced foods and products. Consumers believe this approach to be better for their personal health and the environment. Where just a few years ago organic foods and lifestyle products could only be found in alternative and health food store, people are now able to access them in mainstream shopping venues.
The USDA Economic Research Services notes organic products are available in over 20,000 natural food stores and 3 out of every 4 standard grocery stores.
Additionally, according to the Organic Trade Association, organic produce sales make up the majority of the organic market revenue every year. The organic market is growing every year, and has seen growth in double digits since the 1990’s. To meet consumer demand, over 3,000 American farms were turning organic in 2014.
