Sales of California Organic Processed Products Grow by $1.5 Billion

by Noah Lakritz |

According to a recently released report by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), California’s gross sales revenue from certified organic processed products grew from $11.65 billion in 2017 to $13.17 billion in 2018. These figures show continued growth for the sector, which includes organic products such as cheese, fruit juice, and dried pasta. CDPH, which provides oversight of processed food for the State Organic Program, provides an annual report on the number of organic registrants, annual gross sales, and the amount of each organic processed product type sold. 

The report also provides an opportunity to assess which California regions are gaining and losing organic businesses. Both San Bernadino County and San Diego County saw significant growth in new organic businesses since 2016, while Marin County experienced a 25 percent decrease from 2017 to 2018 alone.
