USDA/FAS GAIN report MX 0322
Demand for organic food products in Mexico has been growing over the last few years along with the overall trend of healthier eating. Organic foods are perceived by many Mexican consumers to be healthier than conventional foods. Mexico is now considered the second more obese country in the world and the Mexican government has made it a priority to reverse this through education campaigns and new food nutrition laws targeting school children. As a result, a growing number of Mexican consumers are pursuing healthier lifestyles which include better eating habits. This makes Mexico an attractive market for U.S. exporters of organic food products.
