What's Driving Consumer Demand for

Organic Food & Beverage Products?

FoodChain ID and The Hartman Group Webinar On Demand

February 17th, 2022


Organic remains one of the most prominent and significant markers of quality in foods and beverages in the United States. In recent years, with over 82% of consumers participating in some way in organic purchases, we’ve witnessed the advance of organic products into new categories even as organic foods and beverages become more affordable for mainstream Americans. 


Building on over 20 years of research on why consumers participate in organics, Laurie Demeritt shared key insights and implications for CPG brands today based on trended data from The Hartman Group’s latest Organic and Beyond and Sustainability 2021 reports.

Topics included:

  • Consumer aspirations, attitudes, and behavior relating to organic food products
  • Highlights of consumer response to third-party certifications and standards relating to:
  • Organics
  • Sustainable agriculture (including the topic of regenerative)
  • GMO's
