Monsanto Falling – Organic Food Sales Reached Over $35 Billion Last Year!

Monsanto Falling - Organic Food Sales Reached Over 35 Billion Last Year

According to a survey on the organic industry from the OTA (Organic Trade Association), American consumers are showing Monsanto exactly what they think of their GMO foods and byproducts.

Over the past five years, sales of organic products in the U.S. have had the fastest growth rate ever, and have jumped 11.5% in the last year alone.

That takes the number from $31.5 billion to $35.1 billion, with $32.3 billion of that amount accounting for just organic food.

The remaining $2.8 billion went towards non-food organic products, like pet food, household cleaners, plants and flowers etc.

Executive director and CEO of the Organic Trade Association, Laura Batcha, addressed the topic in a statement saying,

“The U.S. organic market is experiencing strong expansion, with organic food and farming continuing to gain in popularity. Consumers are making the correlation between what we eat and our health, and that knowledge is spurring heightened consumer interest in organic products.

The entire organic industry needs to rally around helping consumers better understand and appreciate all the values that certified organic brings to the table. Consumer education is critical to grow the organic industry.”

Very true. With misleading labels that say “all natural ingredients” or “made with real ___”, education and awareness of the foods we are buying is paramount. And we are heading in the right direction.

Coca-Cola is losing money and having to reduce their annual budget by $3 billion dollars thanks to a 14% decline in their 3rd quarter earnings. McDonalds is closing 700 of their stores due to an 11% decrease in revenue and a 30% drop in profits.

While these types of companies are attempting to profit from the sale of toxic substances, and failing, other companies are quite pleased to welcome the shift towards healthy, organic, non-GMO foods and products.

Chipotle recently announced that they are now operating their franchise as 100% GMO free, and businesses like Whole Foods are pulling in record earnings with their revenue.

Where our food comes from, how it is produced, and the processes involved in getting it to our table are all important. Ask questions and support organic trade.
