Consumer typologies Supply & distribution New claims Advertising & promotion Main trends New product introductions The future

3 Market drivers Heightened consumer interest in healthy eating and nutrition = consumers more receptive to the organic movement Government support for organic expansion (Organic Entry Level Stewardship Payments) Increased emphasis on local/domestic produce - greater awareness of food miles Further promotion of an organic lifestyle beyond food & drink: e.g. clothing, toiletries Close association between organic and fair trade (growing by 50% year on year)

4 Market Size 2000-04 the market increased by 74%
A further 12% growth is expected in 2005 Fruit & vegetables account for 38% of sales Sales growth in most categories growing faster than non-organic counterparts Source: Mintel

5 Market Segmentation Dairy overtakes prepared foods in 2005

6 Consumer Typologies Reticents: more men than women, under 35s, AB/ABC1 families with kids aged Read broadsheets and use the Internet. Taste is important, they will pay a premium, but need convincing why they should buy organic. Dismissives: Retired DEs. Read popular tabloids and watch TV 5+ hours/day. View organic as overpriced, high level of disinterest. Price Deterred: ABC1 families. Target via mid-market tabloids and in-store promotions. Too expensive- would buy more if cheaper – need to understand difference between organic and ‘natural’. Safers: ABC1 families with young children or third agers. Target via mid-market tabloids and broadsheets. Costs are a key consideration although this group will turn to organic produce when food safety issues are under scrutiny eg BSE. Fans: more women than men, 55-64s, ABs. Target via broadsheets and women’s lifestyle magazines. Health is a priority but superior taste and food safety is also important. Lack of availability biggest deterrent.

7 Supply In the UK, by April 2004, around 3.7% of total agricultural land were fully organic, representing an increase of 37.4% from April 2002 Under-supply in certain areas (i.e. dairy), increased dependence on imported goods The number of licensed organic food processors increased by around 1% between April 2003 and 2004 Sectors such as vegetables, fruit and meat are highly fragmented; while others such as dairy and eggs are dominated by a small number of large suppliers The involvement of large companies has had a positive impact on the market, as they can more easily gain listings with the major multiples and have larger advertising and promotional budgets The leading retailers also play a significant role, both with their own organic ranges, and in their levels of commitment to the organic movement as a whole

9 Organic claims In May 2005, Committee of Advertising Practice approves 22 organic claims for use in the promotion of organic produce: “No system of farming has higher levels of animal welfare standards than organic farms working to Soil Association standards” “No food has higher amounts of beneficial minerals, essential amino acids and vitamins than organic food” “The best method of reducing exposure to potentially harmful pesticides would be to consume organically grown food, where their use is avoided” “Eating organic food allows people to avoid hydrogenated fats completely”

22 The Future Advertising and promotion should become more clear and consistent, with the new approved claims Ethical and food safety issues remain important but mainstream trends such as healthy eating, premiumisation and convenience will influence NPD and product positioning The market is wide open for new entrants; innovation in NPD is coming from the pre-packaged/prepared foods sector, which appeals to the convenience-driven consumer Locally sourced produce is becoming more high profile Natural or “free-from” products are to some extent clouding the issue; as are varying levels of organic status (organic and all natural/organic and free-from) The industry needs to decide whether it wants to be associated with this end of the spectrum or to stand apart In-store location is critical: more than half of UK consumers don’t seek out organic foods, so don’t merchandise them in isolation!
