There is a steady, ongoing increase in the number of products identified as non-GMO in the U.S. market. This is taking place in both the retail market and in foodservice. Driving the market is an expanding consumer desire to have healthier foods with fewer added ingredients or any aspects that are not “natural.”
In the report, Non-GMO Foods: U.S. and Global Market Perspective, 2nd Edition, market research publisher Packaged Facts estimates that retail sales of foods and beverages identified as non-GMO were approximately $200 billion in 2014. This represented about a quarter of all retail food and beverage sales for that year. Looking ahead, Packaged Facts projects that non-GMO food and beverage retail sales will reach $330 billion by 2019, an increase of 65%.
