Organic coffee Trends

Posted 2010 Apr by Herbert Jennings

According to The North American Organic Coffee Industry Survey 2009 by Giovannucci, approximately 89 million pounds of organic coffee were imported into the United States and Canada in 2008, up 12 percent from 2007. The 29 percent annual average growth rate for the organic category between 2000 and 2008 dwarfed the estimated 1.5 percent projected annual growth rate of the conventional coffee industry.

Organic coffee is grown using methods and materials with a low impact on the environment. Organic production systems replenish and maintain soil fertility, avoid the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture. Third-party certification organizations verify that organic farmers use only methods and materials allowed in organic production. Organic coffee is grown in approximately 40 countries, including the U.S.
