Organic Food Market Booms In China, Reaches 5% Of Global Total

June 27, 2011: 08:24 PM EST
China's organic food market has grown significantly and now accounts for 5% of the world trade in organic foods, with the country ranking third in terms of size of organic farmland. Data from the China Organic Food Certification Center shows that China's organic food exports reached $350 million in 2006 (the latest data available).  Chinese exporters take most of the organic produce to markets in Hong Kong, Japan, and Taiwan. Some observers believe that the exports sector is the leading factor driving the organic food market's growth, while some analysts assert that domestic demand is the major growth driver.
