BioFach Market Report V – Scandinavia: Northern Europe contributing strongly to organic boom

Organic sector sales in Sweden were up 13% from the equivalent of 793 million EUR to 897 million EUR in 2010. The organic share of the total food market was 3.1% (Ekoweb, Sweden).

The industrial catering segment achieved 35% growth, and the hotels and restaurants 13% more. In the retail trade, especially the state-licensed Systembolaget shops with their range of alcoholic drinks expanded rapidly, with a rise in the number of organic articles from 120 to 199 and 41% more sales.

Finland achieved an organic market share of 2% in 2010 with sales of 80 million EUR (Nielsen, Finland). Sales are expected to leap to 110 million euros in 2011, says Erkki Pöytäniemi from the export organization Organic Finland.

The organic market leader among the Nordic countries is Denmark, where the 7% share of the national food market is more than three times as much as in Finland and twice as much as in Sweden. After high two-figure growth from 2006–2008, the growth rate in Denmark in 2009 and 2010 was 6% and 4% respectively, reports the Danish association Organic Denmark. The retail trade enjoyed organic sales of 684 million EUR in 2010. Added to this are 174 million EUR for sales to the catering trade, via box schemes, farm shops and filling stations. Experts expect the organic sector to grow by 6 – 10% in 2011.
