Organic Food Exhibition|Organic: from Hype to Norm

2024.04.22

According to Organic Food Exhibition, organic is no longer a secondary thought for consumers. Between increased desire for healthy food options and widened organic product availability, the consumer shift can no longer go ignored. Organic is no longer a trend, but rather an expectation. But how will this shape the product offerings of tomorrow?

 

Organic is here to stay!

 

Organic chocolate offerings increased greatly over the past five years, as both chocolatiers and chocolate manufacturers have continued to grow their range of organic chocolate products. More than 20% of consumers are very interested in buying organic chocolate.

 

Organic drives clean label & health cues

 

According to consumer data, organic is the leading association (68%) in consumers’ perception of “clean label.”‘Other factors include “products found in the fresh food section,” (61%)  “those made with familiar sounding ingredients” (58%) and those made  “with ingredients coming from plants or animals” (51%).

 

The perception that organic products are healthier is motivating consumers to purchase more organic products. Concerns about the potential effects of pesticides, hormones, GMOs and antibiotics, along with the desire to avoid highly-processed food and artificial ingredients are top reasons to buy organic.

 

Products made with fresh, natural and/or organic ingredients carry similar weight with consumers (57%)

 

Organic is attracting certain consumers

 

Organic user’ lifestyle characteristics reveal a very active, community-involved, highly-influential and information-seeking consumer group. Young consumers are the most likely to buy into claims like organic. Millennials are seeking new experiences for a healthier lifestyle and cleaner living. This is driven by an enthusiasm among them to improve their eating habits. The increasing coverage of food trends and healthful eating across media platforms- including bloggers and mobile apps like  Instagram - provides aspirational lifestyles to follow.

 

47% of the 18-34 age-group changed their eating habits toward a healthier diet over the past year, as compared to just 23% of those aged over 55.

 

53% of those aged between 18-34 expect to change their eating habits in the next year compared to 19% of those aged over 55.

 

Organic’s Bright Future

 

Today’s Millennial = Tomorrow’s organic parent.

 

Today only 25% of  Millennials are parents. In the next 10-15 years, 80% of Millennials will be moms and dads. What this means for the organic market could be transformative. Over the next 10 years, we’ll see a surge of new organic eaters and consumers - the Millennial parents of tomorrow and their children. Organic Food Exhibition believes that organic attributes already impacting them today will reach a tipping point in the future.
