South Korea: Organic Foods Market Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

Elevated food safety concerns coupled with evolved taste of the South Korean consumers generate increased demand for imported organic foods. Korea's imports of organic foods amounted to $140 million in 2017, up 8.2 percent from the previous year. The United States remained the leading supplier of imported organic foods to Korea by accounting for 18.6 percent (or $26 million) of the imports in 2017. The bilateral equivalency agreement for processed organic products established in 2014 as well as the Free Trade Agreement established in 2012 between the United States and Korea provides solid foundation for long-term success of American organic foods in Korea.
