Regenerative Agriculture: What’s Next for the Organic and Natural Food and Beverage Market?
Consumer awareness of the sustainability challenges of modern agriculture is spreading, spurring them to consider alternatives. Regenerative agriculture is of growing interest to consumers, particularly when it is framed in terms of bigger-picture advantages like slowing climate change and improving soil health and fertility.
While less aware of the detailed practices involved with regenerative agriculture consumers tend to view the term in a positive light and see it as an agricultural method that goes beyond current organic standards in terms of sustainability and as a proactive approach to restoring and rebuilding the soil. Hartman research finds that:
- 57% of consumers are aware of regenerative agriculture (up 10 percentage points from 2019)
- 75% of consumers are aware of soil health as an environmental concern (up 13 percentage points from 2019)
