Natural and Organic Foods in the U.S., 5th Edition

The marketplace for natural and organic foods and beverages is undergoing tremendous expansion and change. At the retail level, while Whole Foods Market remains the dominant natural foods supermarket chain, itfaces challenge from Trader Joe’s and No. 1 supermarket operator Kroger Co., which maintains almost 2,800 stores across the country under regional banners including Kroger, Ralph’s, and Harris Teeter. Kroger now sells about $11 billion in natural and organic food products annually, making it the third-largest player in organic foods industry after Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Meanwhile, drawn by attractive consumer demographics, a higher growth rate than conventional foods, and a healthier aura, major food companies and private equity firms are buying or making large investments in natural and organic food and beverage companies. For example, in July 2016, France’s Danone SA announced that it will acquire The WhiteWave Foods Co. in a $10 billion transaction by the end of 2016, while General Mills claims it is now the third largest natural and organic food maker in the United States. In addition, responding to consumer demand for more company transparency and cleaner formulation, big brands are overhauling products and portfolios in hopes of winning over natural-leaning consumers. Many consumers seek out organic (36% of the 1,914 U.S. respondents surveyed by Packaged Facts) or natural foods and beverages (42%) when shopping for food. In particular, a good selection of organic fruits and vegetables can be a game-changer in determining where consumers grocery shop.
