Organic Fruit & Vegetables Market Strengthens.
High consumer demand for organic foods is propelling fresh fruit & vegetable sales across Europe. High growth rates have increased the market share of organic products above 5 percent of fresh produce sales in some countries.
Retailer initiatives and high consumer demand for health & nutritious foods are fuelling market growth. High demand is also coming from food processors and foodservice companies, with a growing number of catering firms using fresh organic produce.

Retailers are expanding their organic fruit ranges as more products – especially tropical & exotic varieties – become available.
