This chapter is an update for some of the data presented in the article “Growth trends in European organic food and farming” (Willer et al. 2016) written by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL), the Agriculture Market Information Company (AMI), and IFOAM EU, and published by IFOAM EU and FiBL in the volume “Organic in
Europe, 2016”. Therefore, the structure of this chapter is different from the other regional statistics chapters in this book.
The article focuses on Europe and on the 28 member states of the European Union (EU), and it shows some trends of the EU-13 and the EU-15 countries. The EU-13 countries are those that became members of the European Union in or after May 2004. The EU-15 countries are member countries of the European Union prior to the accession of ten candidate countries on May 1, 2004. Furthermore, the article informs about trends in the EU Candidate and Potential Candidate countries (CPC: Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia (FYROM), Montenegro, Serbia, Turkey), and the members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA: Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Switzerland) as well as other European countries: Belarus, Moldova, Russian Federation, and Ukraine.
