The sales of ecological foods in Sweden rose by 38 percent last year, according to the organisation Ekoweb that keeps statistics on the organic market here.

Last year, Swedes bought ecological groceries for a total of 15 billion krona, that amounts to 5.6 percent all grocery sales in the country. That figure was 2.8 percent five years ago.

The increase is largely attributed to a higher demand for ecological dairy products and eggs, Swedish Radio News reports.

Cecilia Ryegård at the organisation Ekoweb believes that the demand for ecological foods will increase further in 2015 and says to Swedish Radio that farmers will have to work hard to meet the demand.
