According to an article dated September 23, by Blue and Green Tomorrow, Organic food is on the rise all around. More and more consumers are "voting" for organic in many areas, not use food, but they want organic clothes, products, food and beauty items. Soil companies are reporting a rise in their selling of organic soils. From online sales to in-store sales, consumers are seeing and getting the health benefits of the organic way of life. Soil companies say they have been working so hard for years to see just this news.
"It shows people are waking up", says one anonymous organic consumer. Activists work very hard and have stepped it up in 2013, as we can see with all the news reports on such things as the March Against Monsanto and the rise of the Non GMO Project. Consumers are even seeing private stores simply deciding to label their own stores, as Whole Foods, have said they will do. According to the Blue and Green Tomorrow report, "sales in the sector increased by 0.6% in August compared to the same period in 2012. Spending during the period increased from £1.22 billion to £1.23 billion, after several successive falls."
According to the Non GMO Project, "Sales of Non-GMO Project Verified products have gone from $0 in 2010 (when the label launched) to over $3.5 billion just three years later. Consumer concern about GMOs and demand for non-GMO products has made “Non-GMO Project Verified” one of the most sought-after labels in the natural products industry, and the market is responding strongly." As we can see, consumers are demanding more organics, more healthy, non-genetically modified foods (GMOs).
A quick search, online, for organic food and you will see that there is a boom of businesses that have sprang up just since 2013. Not only is the people demanding organic more now, but even the farmers are demanding non-GMO animal feed and food companies are slowly, some faster than others, but surely converting all their product over to organic ingredients.
