In eight years, between 2012 and 2020, the number of agricultural lands dedicated to the cultivation of organic products increased by more than 50%, at an annual rate of 5.7%. In 2020, 9.1% of the EU’s agricultural land was cultivated organically. On average, organic farms are larger than conventional ones and are managed by younger individuals. Additionally, retail sales of organic products doubled between 2015 and 2020.

42% of the area dedicated to organic farming in the EU was devoted to permanent pastures, followed by green fodder (17%), cereals (16%) and permanent crops, such as fruit, olives and vineyards (11%). Despite significant growth, organic animal production still represents a small proportion of total EU animal production: between 1% and 7%, depending on the sector.
