Looking forward, the organic dairy market in China is said to exhibit strong growth during the next five years.

Organic dairy products are derived from livestock raised through organic feed and without the use of synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. As a result, organic dairy products are considered healthier and have higher levels of vitamins, omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA).

Unlike conventional dairy farming methods, organic dairy farming helps in sustaining higher production without the environmental risks. Currently, China represents one of the fastest-growing markets for organic dairy products in Asia.

One of the major factors bolstering the growth of the organic dairy market in China is the rising awareness about the extensive use of fertilisers, pesticides and bovine growth hormone (BGH) due to which a majority of the consumers have shifted towards healthier and organic dairy products. Some of the other forces that have been proactive in maintaining the market growth include rapid urbanisation, escalating disposable incomes and large-scale food adulteration in China.
