Opportunities for the US market
Greentrade organizes pavilions within International Trade Fairs which can promote certified organic products.
We closed our pavilion for Middle East Natural Product which took place in Dubaï in December.
Now we focus on the American market since it is the most important market worldwide for the Organic Industry. Last year we organized a pavilion at ALL THINGS ORGANIC and we appreciated the exhibition this is the reason why we start again for 2006.
Few words regarding the American market :
sales of organic foods were approximately $10.38 billion in 2003, up 20.4 percent from the previous year. Meanwhile, “non-food” organic products, such as personal care products, nutritional supplements, organic fiber, household cleaners, flowers and pet food, grew by 19.8 percent, to reach $440 million in sales.
U.S. organic food sales have grown between 17 and 21 percent each year since 1997, to nearly triple in sales, while total U.S. food sales over this time period grew in the range of only 2 to 4 percent a year. Organic food sales now represent approximately 2 percent of U.S. food sales according to findings from the Organic Trade Association’s 2004 Manufacturer Survey.
According to our market survey made with French Embassy support : There is a growing demand for pre-cooked dishes, frozen fruit and vegetables, alcohols (80 % of the wines bio are imported), aromatic and medicinal herbs (bulk or conditioned), specialities (regional, méditerranean, any non American speciality), cosmetic products.
ALL THINGS ORGANIC is specialized in organic products only (food about 60%, cosmetic, textile). It will take place in Chicago from May 6th to 9th.
Visitors are professionals only : Importers, distributors, wholesalers, supermarkets specialised in organic products, manufacturers looking for raw materials.
ALL THINS ORGANIC will take place with 4 other exhibitions specialized in the US food sales : this is FANCY FOOD, FMI, PRODUCE EXPO.
Visitors have the same entry ticket for the 5 exhibitions. 30,000 professionals visited the trade shows last year.
