German organic market grows to 7.91billion euros


“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 , the specialist 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 %.
