Value of Canada’s Organic Market Triples


OTTAWA — Canada’s organic market grew to $3.7 billion in 2012, tripling sales from 2006 and outpacing other agri-food sectors.

“At the industry’s urging, the government implemented strict national standards and label requirements in 2009 to uphold consumer confidence in organic claims,” said Matthew Holmes, executive director of the Canada Organic Trade Association.

“It’s tremendously gratifying to see this result in such strong market growth and continued consumer commitment to organic.”

According to The Canada Organic Trade Association, 58 per cent of Canadians are buying organic products every week with British Columbia generating 23 per cent of the value of the national organic food and beverage market.
