Scotland's organic market is growing continuously

by Editor (comments: 0)

According to the Organic Market Report 2016 of the British Soil Association, Scotland experienced stable market growth last year, and it was a major contributor to overall growth in Britain. For the third year in succession Scotland recorded growth – in 2015 it was 5%.

The Market Report tells us that the Scots frequently opt for organics: in 2015 they represented around 11 % of all organic shoppers in the UK. 50 % of Scottish consumers say they would buy more organic food and beverages if they were available. Over a third of independent retailers in Scotland reported growth in turnover in 2015 and two-thirds expect growth to have risen in 2016. An example is Greencity Wholefoods in Glasgow, whose turnover in 2015 rose by 17 %.

The Scots are pioneers in the catering sector and school meals in particular: in 2015 organic meals were available in 48 %  of schools. Total expenditure in this category in the UK came to approximately €305,000.
