Special offer: now 20% off original price of $3,750
U.S. retail sales of natural and organic foods and beverages rose to nearly $39 billion in 2010, an increase of 9% over the previous year’s sales of $35 billion, far outpacing growth in conventional groceries, which crept ahead less than 2%. Despite the continued sluggish economic recovery, Packaged Facts projects sales to more than double by 2015, to exceed $78 billion. Growth will be jump-started in 2011, in great part due to snack king Frito-Lay’s switching half its snack portfolio to all-natural formulations. In addition, attracted by the higher growth rates of natural/organic foods and beverages and in response to consumer demand, other major consumer product companies are becoming more deeply committed to natural and organic products, either through acquisition or internal development. Such deep-pocketed marketers are in a good position to fast-track their products into retail stores and onto consumer tables via their massive product development capabilities, far-reaching distribution networks, and huge advertising and marketing budgets.
This completely revised report, Natural and Organic Foods and Beverages in the U.S., 3rd Edition, examines sales and growth potential, identifying key issues and trends that will affect the marketplace through 2015. Extensive analysis via both proprietary primary data from Packaged Facts’ February 2011 Online Consumer Survey and via Experian Simmons’ national consumer panel data gauges consumer attitudes and behaviors toward natural/organic foods and beverages, retail shopping patterns, and media usage and preferences, both traditional and social. Also included is comprehensive coverage of new product trends across dozens of categories, drawing on new product data from Datamonitor’s Product Launch Analytics database; dozens of images of products and print ads; and profiles of trend-making marketers and retailers. Interviews with industry experts round out this forward-looking market analysis, along with the context of the broader social, economic and psychographic drivers of consumer behavior and shopping preferences.
