Opportunities Exist For U.S. Exporters Of Unprocessed Organic Products In The EU

August 23, 2010: 09:36 PM EST
Demand for organic food in the EU – a $27 billion market – is on the rise thanks to several negative food-related incidents plus a growing interest in health, environmental issues, and animal welfare. That, plus the fact that European rules require organic foods and beverages to be processed locally by manufacturers who import ingredients from around the globe, should encourage U.S exporters of organic food ingredients and unprocessed products. Other reasons for optimism: the paperwork requirements for importing such products are less of a burden than for processed products; and the EU is considering legislation that would for the first time cover EU-wide classification and trade in organic products. If enacted, arduous negotiations with individual Member States would no longer be necessary.
