Global organic acreage rises 12% in the UK

The United Kingdom is encouraged in the biological and increases its surface by 12% thanks to an increase in consolidated demand.

Organic market

The growing demand for organic products by British consumers is driving an increase in farmers seeking organic conversion.

The latest organic statistics for 2020 from Defra - UK Ministry of Agriculture - show an 11,6% increase in certified organic land in conversion across the UK, a trend that has increased every year since 2014, with the exception 2019.

United Kingdom

Arable land increased by 7% in the UK. "The incentive for farmers to go organic is a direct response to the sustained growth in demand for organic products through the pandemic," says Sophie Kirk, Soil Association Certification Business Development Manager.

Pro surface

This increase in favor of the 'bio' surface also responds to the report of the collective Soil Association 'Agriculture and Organic Crops' where it was revealed that the income per activity of organic agricultural and livestock farms were higher than conventional ones.

In addition, organic farms generate five times the income per hectare of agri-environmental plans and 50% more income from diversification.
