Make Europe more organic with us
IFOAM Organics Europe represents organic in European policymaking. The EU institutions recognise us as the voice of organic in the EU. To make sure our voices continue to be heard, we need your support!
In 2017, 13 million hectares of the EU’s land were cultivated organically – more than 7% of the EU’s cultivated land. Between 2012-2017, organic land increased by 25%. Between 2007-2017, organic production in Europe grew by 70%, reflecting the sector’s increasing importance.
Organic food and drinks have proven themselves to be the source of considerable profits in the EU, contributing to a lucrative market that in 2017 was worth 34.3 billion EUR and accounted for the 37% of the global market share.
