Organic Food Industry Grew 12% in 2013-2014 Reports Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water Host

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) July 31, 2014

Sales in the organic food industry in the United States grew 12-percent from 2013 to 2014, according to radio talk show host Sharon Kleyne, setting a record in an industry that has been experiencing rapid growth since 1990. The US economy in the same period grew 2-percent. Kleyne, who hosts the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show, reported this information following a recent on-air interview with Patricia Bragg of Bragg Live Foods, a worldwide manufacturer of organic and natural food products.

Rapid and sustained expansion in the organic food industry, Kleyne believes, reflects a fundamental change in the eating habits of consumers, towards less processed and healthier, more natural foods. Since 1990, the organic food industry has grown from $ 1-billion a year in annual revenue to $ 35-billion in 2013. About half of these sales were through the nation’s 20,000 health and organic food stores. The other half were through supermarkets.

“Organic foods,” as described by Kleyne and Bragg, are free from pesticides, growth hormones, chemical fertilizers and genetic modification. Organic foods must meet specified industry standards. A “health food store” is a store featuring organic and natural foods and food products, whole foods, foods high in nutritional content and dietary supplements.

One of the largest manufacturers of organic and natural food products, Hain Celestial, has increased in the last five years from a $ 19 per share stock value on the NASDAQ, to $ 86 per share.

Patricia Bragg pointed out that every successful organic food store, health food store, whole food store and supermarket health food and organic food section in the world, traces their origin to the century old legacy of her father, Paul Bragg, acknowledged as the “Father of the Health Food Movement in America.”

In 1912, Bragg began marketing his own line of all-natural health foods, starting with herbal teas, sea kelp, vinegar and honey. Bragg’s original health food store in Los Angeles, arguably the nation’s first, opened in 1926.
