Organic produce in great demand in Danish canteens and restaurants

“We had expected an increase, but sales going up by 27% came as a pleasant surprise,” said Andreas Buchhave Jensen, the chief consultant at the Danish agriculture and food council, Landbrug & Fødevarer. “It is more than we expected, but it also makes sense because many municipalities are converting to organic food and demand in private kitchens continues to grow.” Organic milk and other dairy products were by far the most popular, making up 36% of organic food sales in the restaurant/catering sector, while sales of organic fruit and vegetables increased by 38% to 356 million kroner and sales of general wholefoods grew from 436 to 557 million kroner.
