Sales of organic food and drink, including organic bananas, chicken, eggs, and wine – increased sharply in the UK during lockdown, helping supermarkets enjoy the highest sales growth in the sector since December 2016.

Sales of organic food and drink soared by double the rate of non-organic equivalents over the past year.

Organic food and drink sales grew by 6.1% – almost double the 3.2% growth of non-organic food and drink products – in the year ending May 2020, data from the market research company Nielsen shows.
