That is a huge piece of research. All of the 50 US states have products that are produced not only domestically used but also exported. And the list of imports and their associated countries is equally huge. Volumes tend to be lower for the natural or organic labeled products when compared to the huge holdings of those whose products do not follow the “organic” guidelines. But even that is changing on a year to year basis. Typing in “organic import export graph” in ‘search’ gave almost 150,000 sites alone with statistics. If this is a research project, you have your work cut out for you. Good luck and any other questions that are more narrowed down in scope will be cheerfully addressed.
