Top Players in the Organic Food Market

The global organic food market size reached US$ 124 Billion in 2020. As per the analysis by IMARC Group, the top manufacturers in the organic food market are currently improving the vertical cooperation between research, policy makers, and farmers’ strategies to address the rising concerns regarding safe food consumption, individual health, and environmental consequences. The Indian organic food market reached a value of US$ 815 Million in 2020. The absence of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides in organic farming necessitates other inputs, like manure addition, crop selection, and irrigation. This has prompted leading players to educate farmers on growing conditions, traditional practices, crop varieties, annual breeds, disease resistance, and adaptability to the local climate. This, in turn, is enhancing the quality of organic produce. Farmers are also adopting nutrient management practices that are based on soil fertility building via nitrogen (N) fixation and nutrient recycling of organic materials with limited fertilizer inputs. This promotes the efficient management of nutrients, soil structure, and soil biology, which further ensures good yield, animal health, and reduced contamination to waterways by plant nutrients.

Apart from this, increasing pet humanization has motivated pet owners to feed organic food alternatives to their respective animals. This trend is encouraging manufacturers in the organic food industry to introduce natural pet food. In line with this, the increasing consciousness regarding the side effects of harmful chemicals on the overall health of babies are prompting parents to shift toward organic baby food variants. Other than this, to assure consumers that the product marketed as organic is indeed produced according to organic production standards, various countries have established their own certification standards. For instance, the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movement (IFOAM) is an umbrella organization, which works to mainstream organic farming, while representing 117 countries. It has developed an accreditation program that evaluates certification schemes. The IFOAM Organics Europe launched the Organic Action Plan to accelerate the production and consumption of organic products, conserve natural resources, restore rural landscapes, and promote public health. Other than this, in 2016, the Coordination of European Transnational Research in Organic Food and Farming Systems (CORE Organics) was launched as a European Research Area Net (ERA-NET) scheme. It intends to consolidate coordination and collaboration between 11 countries, including Australia, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Italy, and the UK, in the area of research and highlight the challenges along the organic value chains. Governments of various nations are also implementing policies to promote organic agriculture. Moreover, key players are employing various novel technologies in the field of organic farming, such as the integration of mycorrhizal fungi and nano-biostimulants, mapping cultivation areas more consciously through sensor technology and spatial geodata, and three-dimension (3D) printing. Another advancement includes the development of the Bee Scanning Application, which utilizes artificial intelligence (AI) to help beekeepers fight parasite mite and form a basis for population modelling and breeding programs. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach a market size of US$ 179 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 6.3% during 2021-2026.
