Russian Forum: Demand for organic products bigger than supply
Last year, demand for organic products grew by 15%, while production increased by only 10%. This consumption trend was noted by the executive director of the National Organic Union, Oleg Mironenko, during the recently held Forum on Organic Agriculture.
"Previously, production was ahead of consumption, but now everything has changed. Last year, worldwide, consumption grew by 15%, while production grew by just 10%. Europe will need organic products worth another 130 billion euros, but who will produce these?"
The main consumers of organic products are 140 developed countries. Among the manufacturers there are 178 countries. The area of cultivation of organic products in the world totals 6 million hectares. To expand this area, it is planned to introduce 27 million hectares of arable land in Russia. About 12 million hectares can be put into circulation quickly.
