Packaged Facts predicts that the US market for natural and organic foods and beverages in the US is set to more than double by 2015.
According to the third edition of Packaged Facts’ Natural and Organic Foods and Beverages in the US, retail sales of natural and organic foods and beverages rose to nearly $39 billion in 2010, an increase of 9% over the previous year’s sales of $35 billion, far outpacing growth in conventional groceries, which crept ahead less than 2%.
Despite the continued sluggish economic recovery, Packaged Facts projects sales to more than double by 2015, to exceed $78 billion. Growth will be jump-started in 2011, in great part due to snack king Frito-Lay’s switching half its snack portfolio to all-natural formulations. In addition, attracted by the higher growth rates of natural/organic foods and beverages and in response to consumer demand, other major consumer product companies are becoming more deeply committed to natural and organic products, either through acquisition or internal development. Such deep-pocketed marketers are in a good position to fast-track their products into retail stores and onto consumer tables via their massive product development capabilities, far-reaching distribution networks, and huge advertising and marketing budgets.
