BioFach Market Report IV – Organic boom in Italy

No other country in Europe has more organic companies than Italy. There were 47,663 farmers, processors and traders in 2010. The organic area is currently 1.1 millionha (SINAB-Sistema d’Informazione Nazionale sull’Agricoltura Biologica, Italy).

The Italian market for organic food is traditionally determined by the independent organic food retail trade, which grew from 700 to 800 millionEUR (+14%) in 2010. Organic products in the conventional trade also grew from 450 to 500million EUR (+11%). The most important organic food shops in Italy belong to EcorNaturasì, the largest chain with 88 organic supermarkets, two restaurants and a butchery. Their sales in 2010 rose by just under 20% to 112 million EUR. The out-of-home catering segments and other marketing channels like farm shops and weekly markets each accounted for 250 million EUR. Whereas organic products worth 1.8 billion EUR were sold on the domestic market, exports achieved another billion EUR. The Italian organic sector thus increased by altogether 300 million EUR (12%) in 2010.
