Fuelled by various documentaries or other mediums that homed in on negative operational aspects of the chemical fertilizers & pesticides, such as the unwarranted addition of growth hormones, the organic food & beverage market accounted to a value of USD 3.03 Billion in 2015. Based on the findings of the report - Middle East & Africa Organic Market Outlook, 2026; by Bonafide Research, the market is to grow with an anticipated CAGR of less than 16%. Consumers looking for organic alternatives are starting small and slowly expanding their shopping basket. Whether it is a lifestyle decision or an ethical commitment; organic is just one aspect and is tied to what can be seen as a trend towards increased adoption of a plant-based or vegan diet.

Even though the organic food segment has a clear dominance, the organic beverage segment is growing at a recommendable rate. Organic packaged food products are slowly gaining traction within the region; however, most current sales come from foreign exports. Following the organic food & beverage and dairy product segment, the frozen & processed food segment accounted for a market of USD 0.76 Billion in 2020. Local consumers, on the other hand, are yet unaware of the benefits of organic products and thus, are not keen on paying a premium for an organic product. There is a wide variety of organic beverages in varied packaging formats available across the region. This attracts consumers to buy them based on their taste preference and convenience. The organic beverage segment was lead by non-dairy beverages, while organic beer & wine remained the least contributor with a share of 1.97% in 2020.

Organic foods & beverages are gaining more and more shelf space in the modern retail spaces, which held a major share of 51.58% in 2015. The region is now seeing some categories that are dominated by organic ranges thanks to significant price reductions, making them more affordable. For example, dry goods, such as grains and pulses were previously, the segment where the people simply wanted to buy the cheapest option, but with the entry of organic players, the people are willing to pay a slightly higher amount for a better product. However, by the end of the forecasted period, even though the modern retail segment is to lead, the online sales channel segment is likely to reach a market value of USD 2.27 Billion.

There were more than 2 million hectares of certified organic agricultural land in Africa in 2018. Compared to 2017, Africa reported an increase of 4’130 hectares, a 0.2% increase. The market is led by Saudi Arabia, which held to a share of 11.75% in 2015 and was followed by South Africa. A significant proportion of organic food & beverage is imported from Europe where organic farming is well established and both producers and consumers are attuned to the concept. The issue in this region is staying true to the essence of the organic lifestyle which means buying in the locality and buying seasonal produce, to consume fresh from the farm within a relatively short timeframe. Many of the African organic farmers are in a handful of countries like Uganda, followed by Tanzania, Ethiopia, Senegal, Madagascar, Kenya, Zambia, Togo, and Mali. African consumption of certified organic produce is relatively small or non-existent, and most organic goods there are produced for export. As global demand for organic products is continuing to grow, African farmers will have little trouble finding markets for their certified goods, but there are, however, many challenges still standing in the way of the African organic farmer.

Higher prices are not necessarily enough, however, to convince farmers to convert to organic production in the region, as there are many more factors important in the determination of profitability. In addition, while some of these factors are shared by organic and conventional farmers, many differ. For example, while organic production means that farmers do not spend as much on synthetic fertilizers and pesticides, farmers’ lack of such inputs may leave their crops more vulnerable to pests and damage.
