There should be no ambiguity in the products we consume or purchases everyday. NON-GMO and Organic foods are no different. Since there is a growing demand for healthier products at grocery stores and supermarkets, consumers win. The growing demand for foods that has not been modified has helped drive down the price significantly. Therefore, farmers are bringing more produce to market at a reason price point.
On average, the price for organic bananas is about twenty cents more per pound, than non-organic bananas. This is a significant change from what the price was a decade ago. Today, the price for organic apples is about thirty-three cents more per pound, than non-organic apples. This huge disparity in pricing between organics and non-organics has shrunk significantly. A trend that will likely continue as farmers and producers increase their output of non-gmo and organic foods.
Many producers of non-gmo and organic foods are also labeling their products accordingly. This is a result of consumers becoming more health conscious about what they’re eating. Albeit, consumers are also becoming more conscious about global food security because contamination and food shortages is very real.
