All over the US grocers are telling their customers that some organic foods are in short supply due to high demand.

My Fox NYis reporting:

A New Jersey ShopRite recently posted a sign saying the short supply (of organic and cage free eggs) was industry-wide and was due to increased demand and limited availability.

A Colorado blogger also snapped a picture in a Safeway store referencing a nationwide shortage of specialty and organic eggs.

And it seems supplies certain kinds of organic produce may also be temporarily limited.

…organic cucumbers are one of a number of items that are harder to find right now.

Since Christmas, cucumbers supplies from Florida have almost ground to a halt and the Mexican supply is coming but it’s just not ready yet.

Jon Steffy ofOrganicproducegeek.comtold Fox that “resolution season” has amplified the desire for organic food.Are these shortages being caused by new years resolutions or are Americans becoming overall more conscious of what they eat?

According to the US Department of Agriculture organic foodsales in the United States have increasedfrom approximately $11 billion in 2004 to an estimated $27 billion in 2012.

The “United States Organic Food Market Forecast & Opportunities, 2018” is forecasting a 14% growth in organic food market from 2014-2018.

Could it be the ever increasing awareness of the potential dangers of GMOs and synthetic pesticides is driving the demand for organically grown food?

With the rise of movements like “March Against Monsanto,” where millions of people world-wide have taken part, and the reluctant reporting on GMO danger by the US corporate press, it seems likely the consumer is consciously straying into the organic market to take control of their health.

Biotech companies like Monsanto have been portrayed as a evil with sinister agendas behind their genetic tampering of organisms and their production of dangerous chemicals, like Round Up.

The 2012 study conducted by Gilles-Eric Seralini, where rats werefed Monsanto GMO Roundup ready corn and developed giant tumors, created shock waves through the media and drove fear into the consumer.

To blame the shortages on a once a year promise to live a healthier lifestyle, or a season of dieting, is a totally silly assumption.

There are scientists and journalists working hard in order to bring to light the side effects of GMOs, pesticides and preservatives which are tainting grocery store shelves everywhere.

The consumer is waking up and is refusing to be poisoned.
