Conventional grocery continues to capture a bigger piece of the $158 billion natural products industry pie, but natural channel retailers continue to play an important role in the industry overall.
Below are some highlights from this year's NFM Market Overview survey, which measures today's natural products retail environment.
Each year, Natural Foods Merchandiser magazine tracks the trajectory of an industry it measured early on at $1.9 billion in 1980. The annual report dives into market-sizing numbers and benchmark data for the natural industry as well as by store types including supplement stores, health food stores and natural products stores.
