LONDON, Oct. 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to The Business Research Company’s research report on the food and beverage market, the demand for local, sustainable, and organic food production is increasing. Organic food production places a strong emphasis on consumer health, environmental protection and animal welfare. Consumers are becoming more concerned with how food is raised and prepared and are willing to pay a little more for something they recognize as healthy. With the coronavirus crisis, a lot of focus on supporting local brands is being emphasized as well.

Across Europe, there is a very high import rate (especially for fruits and vegetables) as the rate of production is far lower than the consumption demands for organic produce. But in May 2020, the organic food and drink sales in the UK increased by 6.1%, almost doubled from the previous year’s growth of 3.2%. This demand for organic products will positively impact the market for food and beverages, as organic foods are comparatively more expensive than conventional foods.

This demand for organic food is not just for humans but extends to animals as well! Pet owners’ concern about their pets’ health is driving the demand for premium and organic pet foods as pet owners often view pets as family members and are willing to spend higher for the best pet products and services. Organic pet foods are free from artificial colors, flavors, antibiotics, synthetic hormones, toxic pesticides and preservatives, whereas premium pet foods contain higher quality ingredients than economy or generic pet foods. Companies that manufacture premium pet foods formulate diets according to the nutritional requirements of an animal.

For example, premium brand companies offer foods that are specially formulated for growing puppies, large- and small-breed dogs, lactating and gestating animals, and geriatric animals. The increasing demand for premium pet foods will help in market growth going forward.
