Opportunity for Organic Products in Asia

Unlike European and South American consumers, Asians show a greater willingness to pay more for organic products.

Tuesday, December 3, 2013

From an article by the Costa Rican Foreign Trade Promotion Office (PROCOMER):

The Spaniards are not willing to pay more for organic products, as is clear from the last Socialogue Report prepared by IPSOS in 24 countries worldwide. Although more than half of the Spanish population (51%) are appreciative of businesses who undertake initiatives to respect the environment, only 27 % were willing to pay more for these products.

This finding is consistent with what happens in countries such as France (27%), Britain (26%), Belgium (25%) and Poland (22%), where the various initiatives undertaken by businesses to preserve the environment are generally applauded, but when it comes time to pay, the numbers change. Even in Argentina and Germany where 71 % and 60% of the population, respectively, applaud the actions of green companies, only 52% of Argentines and 35% of Germans say they would buy such products, even though it would mean a greater outlay.
