21 May, 2019

Organic food sales reached $47.9 billion, for an increase of 5.9 percent. Sales of organic non-food products jumped by 10.6 percent to $4.6 billion. The growth rate for organic continued to easily outpace the general market: in 2018, total food sales in the U.S. edged up just 2.3 percent.
5.7% of all food sold in the U.S. last year was organic.Fruits and vegetables now account for 36.3 percent of all organic food sales. The second-largest organic category, dairy and egg sales were $6.5 billion in 2018, up 0.8 percent from 2017.
Although growth in organic egg sales has slowed from the strong double-digit growth seen in the first part of this decade, the $858 million category still grew by a solid 9.3 percent in 2018. As more consumers get into organic, organic egg demand is expected to continue growing.
