Organic cotton: measures taken to encourage market growth
published in Issue 1, 1st Quarter 2008
The global market for organic cotton has been growing substantially in recent years, but still accounts for only a fraction of total cotton output. This growth has been driven largely by retailers who have pledged a commitment to the use of organic cotton and by organisations which are implementing organic farming initiatives in the developing world.
According to a report by the Organic Exchange (OE)—a USA-based charitable organisation which is committed to expanding organic agriculture—the amount of organic cotton produced worldwide increased by 53% from 2005/06 to 2006/07.
Furthermore, the OE has forecast global organic cotton production to soar by 25-55% in 2007/08. Growth will be driven by continued high demand for organic cotton fibre.
