Colle Farmers Market, an organic farming advocate, comments on an article published by The Tribune on December 26, which discusses the popularity of organic food amongst young people.
According to The Tribune article, titled “More Young People Turn to Organic Foods,” a new study conducted by Piper Jaffray & Co. suggests more teens and adults under the age of 30 are choosing organic food options instead of unhealthy processed junk food. The study, which polled over 8,000 teens from all over the country, found 39 percent of teens are choosing to eat organically produced foods, as opposed to 33 percent two years ago. The article says that the increase in organic food sales will continue to increase as these teens and young adults start families and begin to establish households themselves.
"I think it's a really, really strong change that's going to continue into the future," Piper Jaffray's Sean Naughton says in the article. "This has taken off and become a phenomenon. It's not something that will just ebb and flow through business cycles. I think it's systemic.”
A representative from Colle Farmers Market, an organic farming advocate, affirms that the popularity of organic food is due to a more informed younger generation. “Younger people are becoming more informed on the benefits of organic food and making more health-conscious decisions,” the Colle rep says. “The rise in organic food is likely to continue as these teens and young people grow and start their own families. It’s refreshing to see so many teens eating healthy, organic food and raising awareness for natural, sustainable foods.”
