“The growth in demand in all sales
locations demonstrates that the potential of the organic market is far from
having been fully exploited,” says Röhrig. In 2014 , thespecialist
wholefood trade maintained its strong growth and its 9 % rise in turnover was
the biggest among all the sales channels. In the classic retail
food trade, organic turnover rose by 3.6 %. In 2014, the retail food trade
accounted for 53 % of turnover (2013: 54 %), the specialist wholefood trade for
33.0 % and other outlets for 14 %.
