A major consumer shift towards organic food and beverages has been witnessed in the food and beverages market of Western Europe since the past few years.

Due to these rules, consumers have confidence that whatever they are consuming has been well inspected. This provides the necessary encouragement to manufacturers to venture into organic lactose free dairy products over other non-organic products.
