This market has been helped by an explosive annual growth of at least 20% per year in the last decade (USDA, 1997). By 2015, Canada will stake a claim of between 7 to 12% in the global markets. Canada is already a net exporter of bulk organic grains and oilseeds, and a significant producer of raw products. However, even within Canada, demand for organic products is so great that about 80% of organic store products are currently imported from the USA.
