The organic trend continues. German consumers are buying more and more organically-produced foods.
The organic trend has been growing for years and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.
In the first quarter of 2021, the share of sales accounted for by organically-produced food in Germany doubled from 5.8 percent to just under 12 percent (source: BÖLW). The trend continues to rise sharply.
At present, organic foods outnumber conventionally produced foods in the shopping baskets of around a quarter of all German consumers (source: PWC-Bio-im-Aufwind-Studie 2021).
While the organic own brands of drugstores and discounters have a slight lead in the overall food retail sector, shoppers in the traditional food retail sector relied significantly more on the organic brands of the industry. Here, the share in the first quarter was over 62%.To products in the category
