French organic syrups are exported to Austria and the CEEC

By denan,

Austria counts 24% of its farming lands organic certified, ranks in Europe 5th per capita organic expenditures (196,00 € / year) and 4th in food consumption (8.6%)

It is a market that one would tend to treat, wrongly, in the shadow of his German big brother, whereas they are totally distinct and even tight with respect to each other.

The particular problematic French syrups

The European organic soft drinks market is dominated by fruit juices and me-too of conventional drinks. Syrups, an almost 100% French specificity rank separately and do not benefit of a strong spontaneous demand from the consumers. That is why small local producers are often enough to meet the demand. Yet they are the healthier, more economical and versatile organic beverage you can find.

Access to the market will be done rather by the food service and the craze for Cocktails Bar having opted for organic; Vs the specialized network

This is indeed the case in Austria where it is the Food Service sector that will open the door of this market.

French know-how in the food process can make the difference despite its higher price when it innovates without losing sight of its DNA of culinary excellence. And when he targets the right target.

BTW; Would the Young Organic Foodista (YOF) represent the heart of the target of French Bio? Its medium and long-term export opportunity?

It can be deduced from the fact that this YOF is educated, nomadic, caring for his food and especially ready to pay much higher prices than his elders when it comes to taste quality. For the YOF Organic Food is neither a good-citizen obligation, a choice of life, but a search for pleasure, … free from guilt.

By denan,

Organic salt?

Salt is considered as a mineral and therefore it cannot be certified from organic farming; but a recent European rule will allow sea salts to be so, by 2021.

In the meantime, a raw sea salt accredited by Nature & Progrès mixed with organic dehydrated spices and plants is organic-certifiable; this is the case of this range which found a distributor in the Belgium-Nederland-Luxemborg area (BENELUX); an ultra-dynamic market of nearly 30 million consumers who are keen on Bio.

Why the Ile de Ré?

By its geographical configuration, its eco-system and its mode of inland harvesting sea salts; this territory is naturally protected from the risks of both terrestrial and maritime pollution (oil spills). This is why it is recognized by the certification bodies as a salt that is fully compatible with the Organic reference system.

Thanks to an innovative concept called “Herbal Salt”; or how to export salt by recommending to reduce its consumption!

Indeed, the basic export line is “Organic Herbal Salts – Less Salt & More Taste for Your Food”; which gives in developing “Our herbal solutions will help you decrease your salt intake while increasing the flavor of your food”.

This shift in positioning, from the terroir to nutrition and organic, allows us to reach a whole new field of consumers.

Speciality foods from the French terroir are difficult to export because it is expensive and very typical. Only a fringe of savvy consumers and fine gourmets is able to appreciate it. Those who are adapted to a healthy diet.
