On October 25th, Colle Farmers Market supports an article published by The Australian which reveals that in Australia, organic eating has become a preference for consumers.
The article states that organic foods have become a staple in the diet of two-thirds of all Australians. According to the article, “A new survey compiled by Swinburne University and market researcher Mobium - for Biological Farmers of Australia - and Horticulture Australia, the Australian Organic Market Report 2012, has found 65 per cent of adult Australians purchased an organic product in the past year.” In addition, the article reveals that the ever growing popularity of eating organically in Australia has resulted in one million Australians purchasing organic products. The Australian reports that organic vegetables and fruits are currently the top sales within the industry. The article additionally reveals that major supermarkets are stocking their shelves with organic products like chocolate, meat and milk.
The article affirms that the popularity of organic eating in Australia has made it a mainstream eating choice. Colle Farmers Market, an online platform for natural product vendors and organic farmers, supports the organic farmers and consumers of Australia. Colle Farmers Market believes that by enjoying organic products and eating locally, consumers are making positive impacts on the environment.
According to the article Biological Farmers of Australia director Andrew Monk “identified the organic milk market as one of the fastest-growing. Meat, especially chicken, is another booming field, although consumers remain confused about the difference between free range and organic eggs.” In addition, the article states, “One key change identified in the new report is that organic foods have become comparatively cheaper in the past two years, with the gap between the price of organic foods and conventionally grown produce narrowing.”

The Colle movement is dedicated to connecting natural product vendors, organic farmers and those who are going about an organic and natural lifestyle with the ultimate goal of using more sustainable farming and consumerism.
