Organic Food Industry Is Healthy, But Could Do A Lot Better

September 18, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
Organic food products are increasingly visible on grocery store shelves, including the big box food retailers, and more than 80 percent of American families say they buy organic products at least sometimes. Organic food sales in the United States are booming – $35 billion in 2013. But, according to experts who spoke at a recent industry conference, organic acreage and production are not keeping up with demand. There are still not enough organic farms in the U.S., mainly because there is no federal support system equivalent to that for conventional farmers. That makes it a challenge to attract growers to organic farming.
