Organic Buying Guide

The organic market continues to show sustained growth, with figures from Soil Association Certification’s Organic Market Report revealing a 5.3% growth in sales in 2018 to create a market that’s now worth £2.33 billion. Eco-conscious shoppers are looking for sustainable products that offer full transparency as well as discernible health benefits. As organic food and drink ticks all these boxes and more, there’s never been a better time to sell organic!

Organic sales through Independent retail is still outpacing the multiples, with a 6.2% increase in sales, almost 3% more than supermarkets. Proving that specialist knowledge and advice coupled with a choice of top quality organic brands is key to driving the success of this sector.

When it comes to the organic beauty and wellbeing market, the ‘quest for clarity’ is a pivotal trend, as consumers are trying to weed out the more disingenuous or ‘greenwashed’ organic brands in search of trustworthy certified organic beauty brands. This is helping to drive the green beauty revolution with sales of certified organic and natural beauty products up 14% in 2018.

To help you keep on top of this momentum we’ve launched this updated Organic Buying Guide, filled with the best choice of products and proven best-sellers, across categories including food, drink, beauty and healthcare.

Working in collaboration with Soil Association Certification, our guide delivers up-todate statistics and an in-depth insight into the organic market, with an overview of their latest national marketing campaigns, including Organic September. It also takes a closer look at organic beauty and the zero-waste movement.
