Abstract: The growth of production and consumption of organic agricultural products has become an obvious global trend. Despite the relatively small volumes and the share of such products, the development of so-called "organics" is widely discussed. The scale of production is expanding. Therefore, it is important to determine the prospects for the development of this segment of the in Russia. Economically developed countries occupy a leading place in the production of these products. The USA, EU, Switzerland, Canada, Australia, as well as China play a decisive role in the global organic market. As for Russia, there is a great potential for organic agricultural products. This potential is currently practically not being realized. This situation is associated with many factors. Among the factors it is necessary to highlight the level of income of the population, and the country's opportunities for the development of the agriculture. The level of consumption of organic products is influenced by the degree of development of organic agricultural production itself. An additional factor that will have a lasting impact is the current geopolitical situation, or the new reality. It will significantly limit the sales of Russian organic products. However, the potential for the production and consumption of organic products in Russia is high. It is important to increase the income of the population and expand the use of land for these products. In the new reality, the export of organic products may be aimed at China and other friendly countries.
