Thailand: Health consciousness opportunity for organic markets

Growing health consciousness in Thailand is ensuring a healthy market for organic produce in the country. Sales have been strong domestically, which is good news for growers at a time when exports are low due to the global financial crisis.

Despite the increased demand, environmental factors have limited growth somewhat with floods being responsible for a drop in production. An extra focus on marketing of organic produce is anticipated to encourage continued growth this year. Despite flood damage growth of 12% is predicted.
