Concept Fruits vignette.jpgFrance is a growing frontrunner in the organic food industry in production, distribution, sales and consumption. According to Agence BIO, the French public interest group that promotes organic agriculture, French organic food production has doubled in the last decade: In 2000, the country produced 8,000 organic food products compared to more than 16,000 today. A large part of sales is in big box stores for grocery items but also in specialized stores for organic dietary supplements. Sales of both sweet and savory grocery products have increased by 29% and 22% respectively. Lastly, at least 50% of French people consume at least one organic product each month. This growing industry will be represented at Expo West by seven French companies producing consumables ranging from prepared food to food supplements, all made with organic ingredients.
