Statistics on organic agriculture

Organic in Europe. Prospects and Developments 2016

Demand for organic food in Europe saw another record year of growth in 2014; however, organic production is not moving at the same speed and more effort at policy level is needed, according to the new publication "Organic in Europe: Prospects and Developments 2016".

Cover Organic in Europe
(April 29, 2016) 

The publication was developed in partnership with researchers from FiBL, Marche Polytechnic University and the German organic farmers association Naturland. It looks at the latest market and production developments across Europe in context of the new CAP and current EU agri-food policy, including:

  • A think-piece on expanding organics beyond a niche, taking the latest trends and the European organic movement’s vision to increase the area of Europe’s agricultural land under organic management by 50% by 2030 into account.
  • Facts and figures provided by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) on latest farming and market trends across Europe with special focus on the 28 Member States of the European Union, EU Candidate and Potential Candidate countries, and the members of the European Free Trade Association.
