New organic market reports from Germany and the UK

Two market reports that involved input from the OrganicDataNetwork project have been published


Cover of the Marktbilanz of the German Agricultural Markt Information Compnay (AMI)


Cover of the market report of the UK's Soil Association


Six case studies of comprehensive data checking and limited additional data collection at the levels of retail sales, price, trade-flows, and to a lesser extent production were carried out in the framework of the EU-funded research project OrganicDataNetwork. These include the four well-developed organic markets (Germany, France, Italy and UK) and one country with less developed organic markets (Czech Republic) and the Mediterranean Region, which includes several candidate and potential candidate countries.

In all of the selected countries/regions, some initiatives to regularly collect and publish organic market data already exist, and the organisations publishing these reports were directly involved in this work.

The UK's Soil Association have published their 2014 Organic Market Report (containing data from 2013) and Germany's Agricultural Information Company (AMI ) have published their annual market report. Both publications this year include input from the OrganicDataNetwork project.
