Unlocking Opportunities: Natexpo Showcases the Organic Food Sector



The organic food industry has witnessed a remarkable surge in popularity in recent years, driven by an increasing global awareness of the importance of sustainable and healthy food choices. In France, a country renowned for its gastronomic culture, the organic food sector has been thriving, offering a fertile ground for Nordic seeking promising business opportunities. Natexpo International trade show, one of the most significant organic and sustainable living trade shows, stands as the ideal platform to explore this vibrant sector and unlock its potential.

The Rise of Organic Food in France

France has experienced a significant shift in consumer preferences towards organic food. With growing concerns about health, the environment, and animal welfare, French consumers are increasingly embracing organic products as part of their lifestyle choices. The demand for organic food has been steadily increasing, which is expected to continue. According to the Barometer of the perception and consumption of organic products published in March 2022, 9 out of 10 French people consume organic products in their daily consumption. With the Nordics, France remains one of the best students in organic at the European level.

A Flourishing Organic Food Ecosystem

France boasts a well-developed organic market characterized by a diverse range of products and a robust distribution network from supermarkets, specialist shops, craftsmen and small businesses to direct sales. In 2022, the milestone of 60,000 farms committed to organic farming (certified or in conversion) was passed, representing 14.2% of French farms. The organic sector offers many business opportunities, from fresh produce, dairy, and meat to beverages and packaged goods.

The French government has been actively promoting and supporting the organic food sector. With France 2030, a €54 billion global investment plan for a sustainable future, the government reinforces its commitment to supporting the sector’s development. In its 3rd priority, France 2030 plan wants to invest in healthy, sustainable, and traceable food.
