Organic Milk and Cheese Sales Rise
21.5.07

Over the past year sales of organic milk have risen by more than a fifth, and organic cheese sales rose by over 20% (according to retail analysts TNS).

Consumers are prepared to pay approx one third more for organic milk. Tesco charge £1.11 for standard milk and £1.46 for organic milk.

A study for the Scottish Executive points out the sales for organic milk could be worth £108m to the UK in 2007. However despite the growing popularity for healthier, ethical, and organic food there is a shortage of organic farms in Scotland. This is because of the high costs of converting a conventional farm into an organic farm.

A survey was carried out on 1000 adults in the UK, and showed more than a quarter (27%) of people said it was very important to them to give their children organic food. In many cases they were willing to forego personal luxuries to do this.

More research carried out by the Soil Association points out that parents of young children are among the biggest supporters of organic food. Organic baby meals now accounting for more than £50m of the market.

This switch from non-organic to organic is due to findings that shows organic milk contains higher levels of vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids such as Omega 3, in comparison with conventional milk. It is better for you. Non-organic dairy farmers use maize and protein supplements, to increase the yield of the milk, but this actually takes away from its nutritional content.
