Low shelf life of organic food and beverages compared to conventional foods and beverage products is restraining the organic food market.For instance, in a research conducted by MSNBC, it was reported that the shelf life of organic food product tends to be shorter than conventional produce.
Similarly, some researchers found that many organic foods had higher levels of bacteria than conventional products that cause food to spoil.As organic food is not exposed to the similar amount of preservatives that of conventional food, organic food tends to be prone to bacteria attacks and has a shorter shelf life.
For example, organic food products like turnip greens, mustard greens, and endive have a very short shelf life with shrinkage percentage of 50%. Thus, high packaging, logistics and distribution costs to increase shelf life is limiting the growth of the organic food market.
The organic food market is regulated by authorities such as the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) to ensure high quality standard of food product is maintained.For instance, EFSA oversees whether labelling is used to mislead consumer on the nutritive proportions of a product in the EU.
EFSA performs occasional checks on the nutritional value to check whether correct labelling has been used or not. In order to maintain transparency and effectiveness, regulatory authorities have come up with strict food labelling regulations for the organic food market.
Increasing health concerns due to growing number of chemical poisoning cases globally is acting as a driver in the organic food market.Consumers are becoming more health conscious owing to the harmful effects caused by the presence of chemical pesticides in food products.
