As regular pasta and rice were out of stock in several supermarkets during the first lockdown in spring 2020, organic rice and pasta benefited and for the year as a whole each recorded rapid acceleration in volume growth compared with 2019.

Artisanal products have a significant share in organic packaged food, largely due to wide availability and strong sales of artisanal organic bread. Sales of organic packaged food are also largely driven by organic private label ranges, whose collective share is just over a third of the total category.
