This 290,000 hectares growth is the world’s biggest increase in organic land area, greater than huge countries such as Canada, Russia, China and others recorded.
Over 10 years, this is a 200% growth rate – an incredible rate that saw about 5000 farms a year convert to organic in 2017 and over 6600 in 2018.
This means that when 2019 stats come out, it is predicted that there will be over 46,000 organic farmers in France.
The market too saw enormous growth in France:  at 15.4% growth in 2018, France again saw the world’s biggest increase.
France is now the world’s third biggest organic market, behind the US and Germany. Organic eggs now command 30% of the entire egg market in France.
Agence Bio, a French agency that supports the development of the organic sector, predicts another 50% market growth by 2025.
