Key takeaways:

During the session the expert panel shared their fascinating thoughts and insight into the emerging trends in the organic sector, how the pandemic affected people’s perception of organic, and how organic supports the  wider sustainability message.

The panellists discussed how there has been a huge 35% increase of organic consumption during the pandemic. The

We are seeing a new type of consumer, who is younger and environmentally conscious.

There has never been a greater need for producers and retailers to join forces and spread a clear message about organic products. Labels need to be easy to read and the packaging needs to be as sustainable as the product.

The sector needs to continue to be transparent and provide high quality products for a health-conscious consumer.  We need to continue innovating and digitalising processes to   the consumer.

The increase in organic consumption is a trend that is here to stay so there is a bright future ahead of us.
