Protecting Health Rising Chemical Poisoning Concerns Drive Growth In The Organic Food Market

 

Increasing health concerns due to growing number of chemical poisoning cases globally is acting as a driver in the organic food market.

The toxicity of chemical pesticides in food products can cause cancer, hormone disruption, and birth defects.

Shelf-Life Challenges In The Organic Food Market Balancing Freshness With Distribution Costs

 

The low shelf life of organic food and beverages compared to conventional foods and beverage products is restraining the organic food market. For instance, in research conducted by MSNBC, it was reported that the shelf life of organic food products tends to be shorter than conventional produce. Similarly, some researchers found that many organic foods had higher levels of bacteria than conventional products that cause food to spoil. As organic food is not exposed to the same number of preservatives as conventional food it tends to be prone to bacteria attacks and has a shorter shelf life. For example, organic food products like turnip greens, mustard greens, and endive have a very short shelf life with a shrinkage percentage of 50%. Thus, high packaging, logistics, and distribution costs to increase shelf life are limiting the growth of the organic food market.
