The Glyphosate Residue Free market grew from $197 million to $533 million.
The Detox Project recently released their latest data on the Glyphosate Residue Free certification market, after reviewing 2021 first quarter data provided by their data partners SPINS.
SPINS, a leading provider of data and insights for the natural, organic and specialty products industry, revealed through their data that the Glyphosate Residue Free certification market has reached USD $533 million, an increase of 170% year over year.
Glyphosate Residue Free certification is a relatively new seal, having been launched by The Detox Project in 2017. Since its introduction it has caught the attention of brands and consumers alike, with a concentration of interest in the U.S. and more recently also internationally.
Linkage Research & Consulting also recently revealed, in a large-scale Internet-based study, that consumer recognition of Glyphosate Residue Free certification has surged. It is now one of the fastest growing certifications in North America.
Brands such as Oatly, MegaFood, Chosen Foods, Califia Farms, Chobani, Wedderspoon, Puris and Once Upon a Farm are amongst the 90 plus brands that have certified some or all of their products as Glyphosate Residue Free. The American e-commerce membership-based retailer Thrive Market has also thrown its support behind the certification.
Hopes to educate more people about glyphosate dangers
The Detox Project, a research and certification platform that supports transparency in the food and supplement industries on the subject of toxic chemicals, established Glyphosate Residue Free certification with the hope of educating more people about the dangers of the world’s most used weedkiller entering the food supply.
Henry Rowlands, director of The Detox Project, said that “it is encouraging to see that consumers are becoming more aware of the harm that environmental toxins such as glyphosate can cause to themselves and their families. We support a toxic free future for our children and this can only be reached through mass public awareness.
Keith Rowe, co-founder, White Leaf Provisions, said: “Being a first to market ‘regeneratively farmed’ family food company, we pride ourselves on offering our consumers total transparency as regards all ingredients that we use in our products. Working with The Detox Project for some years to showcase their ‘Glyphosate Residue Free’ certificate has been a huge asset to our business and well received by our consumers.”
