Innovation in product offerings such as plant-based alternatives, functional foods, organic convenience products, and value-added organic ingredients are driving the market growth by the end of the forecast period.

Clifton, New Jersey, May 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Organic food and beverages have become more than just a passing fad—they're a major lifestyle trend that's here to stay. The term "organic" has gained much popularity in the last decade and refers to the process by which certain foods are produced. Organic food is grown without the use of synthetic chemicals, such as human-made pesticides and fertilizers, and does not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs). The surge in demand for clean-label food and beverage products is expected to be a significant driver for the growth of the organic food and beverage industry. Consumers have become more conscious of the food or beverages they consume. They want to gain information regarding the ingredients of the food and beverages, their source, and the certifications of government authorities to ensure that every product is organic and sustainable. The rise in health consciousness among consumers exponentially increases the demand for sustainable food and beverages. Nowadays, organic farming methods are perceived as more environmentally friendly compared to conventional agriculture. Organic farms avoid or minimize the use of synthetic chemicals, reducing pollution of soil, water, and air. By choosing organic products, consumers support sustainable agricultural practices that promote biodiversity, soil conservation, and the preservation of ecosystems.

From plant-based milk alternatives and gluten-free snacks to cold-pressed juices and sustainably sourced coffee beans, the organic movement has expanded its reach to meet diverse dietary needs. It's not just about the absence of chemicals; it's about embracing holistic well-being and making conscious choices that positively impact our bodies and the planet. One such trend is the rise of "farm-to-table" and "farm-to-glass" practices, emphasizing the traceability and freshness of organic ingredients. Consumers are increasingly seeking out local, organic produce and artisanal products that connect them to the origins of their food and drinks. The organic market has witnessed significant innovation and product diversification. There is now a wide range of organic options available, including fresh produce, dairy products, beverages, snacks, and even organic packaged and processed foods. The availability of diverse organic product offerings appeals to a broader consumer base and drives market growth. In addition to that, many governments around the world are actively supporting organic farming practices through financial incentives, grants, and subsidies. These initiatives aim to promote sustainable agriculture, reduce chemical usage, and support the growth of the organic sector.

With the increasing need for efficient and sustainable food production, there is a rise in vertical farming and controlled-environment agriculture. These methods allow for year-round organic cultivation in urban environments, reducing reliance on traditional farming practices and minimizing environmental impact. Also, the development of cellular agriculture techniques leads to the production of organic meat products without the need for traditional animal farming. Lab-grown meat has become a viable option, meeting the demand for sustainable and ethically sourced protein. There are major advancements in organic food preservation techniques that extend shelf life without compromising quality. This includes innovative methods such as high-pressure processing (HPP), pulsed electric fields (PEF), or natural antimicrobial agents to maintain the freshness and nutritional value of organic products. VR and AR technologies are also enhancing consumer experiences by providing virtual tours of organic farms, interactive product information, and immersive storytelling, helping consumers connect with the origins and production processes of organic food and beverages. On the other hand, blockchain technology has the potential to revolutionize supply chain transparency. By utilizing blockchain systems, consumers can access detailed information about the origin, production methods, certifications, and quality of organic products, ensuring greater transparency and trust. “Organic farming practices contribute to soil fertility, biodiversity conservation, and reduced chemical residues in food, making it a vital component of sustainable agriculture and food security," says Mr. Dhwipal Shah, Research Director with Bonafide Research.

Today’s interest in organic may have intensified, but the organic industry's growing popularity is not new. Consumers are eating more organic food and using more organic products than ever before.
