Naturex sees organic sales double

Further to last week’s Soil Association’s report of growing organic sales in the UK, Naturex has announced that its sales of organic ingredients in the US have more than doubled in the past two years, thanks to the boom in America’s organic food and beverage market – the value of which grew 11.6% to $36.9 billion in sales in 2015.

The natural ingredients company says it has been expanding its organic product offer in response to this trend, and now offers a total of 50 organic ingredients – a third more than two years ago.

Naturex supplies organic botanical extracts, natural colours and fruit and vegetable powders for use in a range of food, beverage and nutraceutical applications. Turmeric, moringa, acerola and cranberry are among those ingredients driving Naturex’s increased organic sales.

“Sales of organic products in the US have been enjoying steady growth for several years now and they have reached a tipping point that has taken organic into the mainstream,” said Timothée Olagne, Naturex’s Marketing Director for Nutrition & Health. “The organic market is strategic for Naturex as it is at the center of our mission to bring cleaner, healthier and more nutritious natural ingredients to market. We are very well positioned and we will continue to develop our organic range of natural colors, functional botanical extracts and fruit & vegetable based ingredients.”

A new nutrition prototype based on organic moringa powder is being promoted by Naturex. The Moringamulti concept contains Naturex’s full spectrum moringa powder, standardized to 1% Omega 9 and 600ppm vitamin E. It is combined with whole acerola powder standardized to 34% vitamin C and mushroom powder standardized to 5,000IU/g of vitamin D. All of the ingredients in the concept product are certified 100% USDA organic.

“As a result of our cross-market expertise, Naturex can offer an extensive range of organic ingredients for all kinds of food, beverage and nutraceutical applications, said Olagne. “With demand for organic products rising fast in the US, there has never been a better time to explore how natural organic ingredients from Naturex can help our customers to tap into this trend successfully.”
