Organic Packaged Food Market in the US 2016-2020

About the Organic Packaged Food Market

An organic value chain is quite similar to any supply chain. The difference lies in the fact that in an organic value chain, the entire process, from the sourcing of raw materials to the retailing of packaged food products, is taken into consideration and each step adds value to the organic product in question. Different organic packaged food products have different value chains, due to their inherent nature. For the continuous growth of organic packaged food products in the US market, it is essential that the supply chain management of each packaged food product be taken care of individually. For example, perishable items like milk, cheese, and yogurt need to have a shorter value chain than non-perishable ones like wheat and rice. An organic value chain not only adds value to the product at every step of processing but also makes organic products easily available to consumers.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the Organic Packaged Food Market in the US to grow at a CAGR of 3.23% during the period 2016-2020.
