UAE organic food market is anticipated to witness rapid growth through 2025 owing to increasing number of standard local organic food farms in the country. The rising health consciousness, especially among younger population and increasing prevalence of various lifestyle related ailments such as cardiovascular diseases, obesity and diabetes are acting as key growth drivers for UAE organic food market. Moreover, the government is taking initiatives to lower obesity rate of the country, which is supporting the demand for organic food products. Consumers are also paying more attention to their diet and trying to include healthier options such as organic fruits and vegetables, which are free from chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

Additionally, the UAE government is implementing regulations on organic farming and is coming up with certification process to ensure that the locally grown organic fruits and vegetables meet the international organic farming standards. The establishment of organic farming department and Organic Farming Association in UAE is further acting as a major growth factor for organic food market in the country. However, the market is also witnessing some challenges.
