India: Organic Industry Market Report - 2021

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   IN2021-0095

India’s organic agricultural, food, and retail sectors are going strong despite the COVID-19 pandemic in market year (MY) 2020/2021 (April-March). India's organic products exports surpass $1 billion, with the United States absorbing 54 percent of these exports. Domestic consumption of organic food products has grown during the period, driven by growing preferences for healthy and immunity-building foods. India’s APEDA reports that in MY 2020/2021 organic crop production reached 3.2 million metric tons (MMT), up 36 percent compared to MY 2019/2020. Oilseeds, fiber crops, sugar, cereals, and millet are the major organic crops being produced in India. However, challenges related to India’s organic control system and increased incidences of fraud continue to impact the credibility of India’s organic sector, and its exports.
