million. It is a very small share, both in
terms of Sweden’s total food exports of
SEK 67 billion and the global market for
organic food that totals SEK 550 billion.
The Potential for Increased
Swedish Production

food in the retail sector is approximately
43%. The equivalent share of KRAV-
labelled products is 45%. The share of
Swedish products is biggest for dairy and
fresh products, and lowest for colonial
products, confectionery products, fruit
and vegetables.
