As global demand for organic food and beverages continues to outstrip supply, more and more manufacturers are exploring ways to profit from the trend. The potential payoff is huge. Zion Market Research predicts that the worldwide organic food and beverage market will reach more than $323 billion by 2024—up from $125 billion in 2017, for an annual growth rate of more than 14%.
Having a robust food safety system goes a long way in helping to meet organic standards and obtaining certification. Medium-sized and large food manufacturers that have a team in place that can ensure compliance with food safety requirements are well-positioned to embark on organic production. And many start-ups are meeting all the requirements of both sets of standards.
