Prospects of the organic market in Brazil
The Brazilian organic food market is growing at enviable rates that go over 20% a year, according to records from the project organic Brazil until 2014. In 2015, the growth was 25% and should exceed 30% now.
Some food sources that must increase organic revenues in 2016 are dairy and animal products, that have higher added value, the source reveals. However, even global consumption is still low, compared to general revenues in the food sector, it point out. Ming Liu, executive coordinator of Organics Brasil says “It is important to know that there is a market that is growing steadily, and its structure will be determined by demand, production and product availability.”
Estimates for 2016 confirm a growing trend in Brazil. The organic market around R$350 billion worldwide and R$2.5 billion in Brazil (0.71%) – about US$80 billion and US$600 million respectively. If Brazil’s growth forecast for organics is between 30% and 35% materializes, Brazilian revenues should exceed the R$3 billion mark this year – one third is related to exports.
The sector has expanded rapidly into rich countries and is now regarded as a development mechanism, in areas where small production units prevail, such as Brazil. The appeal has broadened since 2014, when the United Nations began to highlight the socio-economic advantages of family farming.
Being 30% high valued, organic products are able to increase farmers’ incomes.
