Reasons for buying organic foods (and avoiding conventionally grown foods) include environmental concerns, food safety, and a desire to eat fresh and less processed foods.

While the reasons for buying organic foods are very important to many people, organic foods and beverages are usually more expensive than conventionally grown foods, sometimes 50% to 100% more costly. In response to higher prices, people sometimes choose conventional foods to save money because they think that they can’t afford organic food.
