Although, it is always valuable to learn what the upcoming food trend predictions are for the year, it is even more interesting to see what has transpired within the marketplace related to those trends. Let’s take a closer look at organics, one of the macro-trends that has consistently appeared on various trend reports over the past two years.
Today, organics is fast becoming a growing and important mainstream market segment within Canada. In fact, according to the Canadian Organic Trade Association, “two in three Canadians (66%) are spending at least some of their weekly grocery budget on organic items, up 10 points from 56% in 2016.1 With annual growth of organic pre-packed foods outpacing traditional pre-packaged CPG food sales at +7%1 versus just 2.4%2 respectively, this is a viable option for food manufacturers to consider when searching for their next potential category market growth opportunity. Also, with 83% of millennials indicating they are purchasing organics, this is one trend expected to prevail for quite a long time.1
