The area under organic agriculture has increased significantly over the last years and represents about 4.3% of the utilised agricultural area of the EU (in 2008), with particular high percentages in the Austria, Sweden, Estonia, the Czech Republic and Latvia.

About 197,000 farms all over the EU are involved in organic farming. However, despite a significant growth in demand in many Member States, the organic sector does not represent more than 2% of total food expense of the EU consumers, with even lower percentages in EU12 Member States.
