Global Organic Milk Market: Market Driver and Restraint

Organic milk has been gaining popularity among some consumers due to increasing concerns on food safety. Organic milk must come from a cow that has not been treated with antibiotics, has not been given hormones ― for either reproduction or growth ― and has been fed at least 30 percent of its diet on pasture. (That’s the minimum ― farmers in more temperate regions are expected to let their cows graze on pasture for as long as possible.) The rest of the cows’ feed must be grown without chemical fertilizers, pesticides or genetically modified seeds. The organic raw milk must has organic certification (Such as EU-Eco-regulation, USA NOP, etc.). The strict controls during the production attract more market opportunities for the industry.

Organic milk industry is also facing challenges. One issue is the antibiotic question. One of the biggest societal benefits that organic has brought to the conversation is actually implementing animal agriculture without the use of systemic antibiotics. They have to be used if the animal requires it, but then [those animals] are not allowed to be sold into organic production—either meat or milk—if an antibiotic is used to save that animal. Besides, the higher price of organic milk also limits the market development.
