How can growth and trust in organic go hand in hand?

In response to today’s societal, environmental and health challenges, organic products have positioned themselves as a viable solution, offering a more durable consumer approach which also protects your health. In France, 9 out of 10 people consume organic products, if only rarely, and the sector continues to win over new consumers (Source: Agence Bio 2020).

The foundations of the organic market have now been firmly established, but that promise alone is no longer enough. To consolidate that growth and ensure that it lasts, the industry must align it with trust in organic…

The conferences will be held in French, with simultaneous translation provided in English.

An overview of today's organic market: how is growth structured in the organic sector?

Organic products provide a major lever for addressing the societal and environmental challenges that consumers expect to face in the future. Driven by hungry demand, the organic sector has expanded into all the different distribution channels.

What used to be a committed stance, and then an opportunistic opening, organic has now become fully integrated into the strategies of stakeholders across the industry. Day 1 lays emphasis on the latest facts and figures about the organic market, and the different ways to maintain its growth.

Beyond organic: new trends coming to the fore: what levers should we pull to ensure consumer confidence?

After a string of health scandals over the past few decades, and especially now with the impact of the global pandemic, organic products have come to mean a ‘safe haven’ for many, guaranteeing quality to consumers. As a result, a whole new range of products has been introduced onto the market, either as supplements or alternatives to organically-certified products. Overwhelmed by this profusion of solutions, today’s consumer is left feeling confused and at a loss as to know who to trust. Day 2 focuses on initiatives and approaches for strengthening consumer confidence.

Organic is no longer enough!

Since organic has spread into the mainstream, a larger number of people now have access, but that opening also pulls the market away from its core values. Our guest speakers reveal the solutions put in place to go that one step further.
