This CA aims to develop a framework for statistics on organic food production, trade and consumption in EU/EEA/CEE states, to meet market analysis needs of food producers, processors, distributors and retailers considering investments, and the need of regulators and policy-makers to monitor this rapidly growing sector including tractability issues and sustainability indicators. It aims to combine results from EU research projects (FAIR3-1996-1794 OFCAP, QLK5-2000-0l124 OMIARD and QLK5-2000-01112 CONVERSION), commercial market analyses and Euro stat 2092/91 data collection and to support improved data quality, standardization and detail on specific commodities. The aims will be achieved by reviewing existing data collection systems, producing a database and website, developing quality standards, conducting case studies in key countries and making recommendations for establishment and resorting of a European Information System for Organic Markets.
