As we’ve mentioned, the natural and organic industry is having a moment and breaking records. The New Hope Network’s Nutrition Business Journal reported that in 2021 the industry grew by 7.7% to $274 billion in 2021. Currently, it’s expected to cross $300 billion in sales by 2024, and $400 billion by 2030. Part of the reason why this has been the case is the role of the pandemic. End consumers are more preoccupied with their health, which has led to changes in consumer behaviours. It’s also important to note that there’s been a growth in the numbers of new customers who have turned to natural and organic products.
