Yup! Organics Are Mainstream

One more reason Whole Foods was in trouble.

The Organic Trade Association said sales of organic food and goods grew more than eight percent last year. Sales topped $47 billion in 2016, with organic food accounting for $43 billion of the total market and now accounts for just over five percent of the nation's total food sales. Impressive considering that overall food sales grew just 0.6 percent last year. One notable growth area is meat and poultry organics which grew over 17 percent and now takes in almost a billion dollars in sales. 

Meat and poultry is another segment showing strong consumer demand for organic. Sales of organic meat and poultry grew more than 17 percent to $991 million last year, marking the category's biggest yearly gain.
