Over 10 percent of food in Danish supermarkets is organic
If you’re like an increasing number of people in the world and have dedicated yourself to trying to eat organically as much as possible, Denmark is the place to go.
A new report (here in English) from the Swiss research centre FiBL has revealed that Denmark’s supermarkets have the highest percentage of organic food produce in the world.
“Globally, European countries account for the highest shares of organic food sales as a percentage of their respective food markets. Denmark has the highest organic share (9.7 percent) worldwide,” wrote FiBL.
“Individual products and product groups hold even higher shares. Organic eggs, for instance, constitute more than 20 percent of the value of all eggs sold in several countries.”
Luxembourg came second with 8.6 percent, followed by Switzerland, Sweden and Austria.
