The Japanese organic market is growing into the third largest in the world. Only the USA and Europe are ahead of Japan in a market that according to Organic Monitor amounts to some 26 billion US dollars for 2001. The London market researchers already forecast a global turnover of just under 80 billion US dollars for 2008 based on conservative calculations.
