Why the Organic Expo?

Society today is demanding a healthier and more environmentally responsible lifestyle in response to a real concern for our well-being and that of the world we live in. However, navigating your way around the growing myriad of products and services available can be quite a difficult task. The Organic Expo has been created to take the sweat out of your steps and provide you with a ’one stop shop’ on what is available, where you can find them, why they are better and who are the genuine players.

“Organic products are one of the fastest growing food sectors in the world and are currently produced and consumed in over 130 countries”, Andre Leu, the Chair of the Organic Federation of Australia stated.

Globally the organic market is valued at approximately US$30 billion. Market analysts forecast annual growth rates between 10% and 30% around the world. Asia and North America are enjoying a sustained annual growth of between 20-45%. Demand is outstripping supply in key areas.

Currently Australia has 12.5 million hectares of land being farmed under certified organic principles. This represents 45% of total global area being farmed under organic management – making Australia the No.1 country for having the largest area of organic farm land.
