Increasing health concerns due to growing number of chemical poisoning cases globally is acting as a driver in the organic food market.Consumers are becoming more health conscious owing to the harmful effects caused by the presence of chemical pesticides in food products.

This is causing consumers to shift their focus towards organic food products. Low shelf life of organic food and beverages compared to conventional foods and beverage products is restraining the organic food market.For instance, in a research conducted by MSNBC, it was reported that the shelf life of organic food product tends to be shorter than conventional produce. Similarly, some researchers found that many organic foods had higher levels of bacteria than conventional products that cause food to spoil.As organic food is not exposed to the similar amount of preservatives that of conventional food, organic food tends to be prone to bacteria attacks and has a shorter shelf life. For example, organic food products like turnip greens, mustard greens, and endive have a very short shelf life with shrinkage percentage of 50%. Thus, high packaging, logistics and distribution costs to increase shelf life is limiting the growth of the organic food market. Companies in the organic food market are focusing on introduction of new product categories and varieties.Organic food manufacturers are coming up with new and innovative organic food products in the form of ready-to-eat snacks, cookies, organic tea, pulses, spices, edible flowers, frozen waffles, medical plants, herbs and organic juices.
