The organic food market in the European Union (EU) is booming. U.S. organic exports to the EU may have reached record levels in 2017, though limited organic-specific harmonized system (HS) codes makes data speculative. Still, good prospects exist for U.S. organic products such as sweet potatoes, fresh produce, dried fruit and nuts, specialty grains, and processed products as well as premium products. USDA endorsed EU trade shows like BioFach, the world’s largest organic trade fair, provide an excellent gateway for U.S. companies for establishing contact with business partners. This report provides an overview of the policy and trade situation in EU member states, regarding U.S. organic exports.
