Organic Milk Market Report 2017
The 2017 edition of the OMSCo Organic Milk Market Report highlights strong growth worldwide for organic dairy, driven by a common consumer focus on health and wellness.
In the UK , organic milk volumes increased by 4.4% in 2016, in contrast to the standard milk category which fell by 1.9% during the same period.
The organic milk category attracted 1 million new households, an increase of 15%. 1 in 4 households now purchase organic milk.
Organic dairy in the UK is worth £344m, growing at 2.2% but this lags behind other key international markets.
Exports have therefore become an increasingly important market for UK organic dairy, playing an important role in balancing UK market fluctuations and therefore delivering a stable return to UK farmers.
