Please provide a list of all the retailers in Europe (except the UK) that import Australian organic products.

My research revealed that there is little information available on which European retailers import organic products from Australia due to trade laws regulating organic imports to European countries and the lack of organic trade information provided by Australian Government's Department of Agriculture and Water Resources.

While I am unable to provide you with a complete list of retailers importing organic Australian products, I can provide you with insights into Australia's organic exports to Europe, as well as a partial list of retailers and outlets most likely to offer organic Australian products.

Relevant research

I triangulated the requested information by first researching where Europeans purchase the majority of their organic products. I then gathered data on what organic products Australia exports to European countries (primarily beef, perishable food products, and cosmetics), as well as the top Australian organic exports worldwide.
I located an archived report of projected European organic food markets. While the report is an older publication, the predicted trends were corroborated by a recent anaylsis on organic shopping trends in Europe, stating that more than 50% of all organic product purchases are made at general retailers.
I found a news article detailing a recent partnership between Australian supermarket group Woolworths (a major retailer of organic foods in Australia) and a Switzerland-based European Marketing Distribution (EMD). The article states that "EMD is an alliance between 14 members in the European grocery retail sector located across 22 countries" and that Woolworths will take advantage of the partnership's ability to "provide a network for its Australian and New Zealand suppliers interested in exporting to Europe."

CONCLUSION

Based on the facts that most European shoppers purchase their organic products at supermarkets and that Woolworths has partnerned with EMD to provide more Australian import opportunities, I concluded that the majority of European retailers will have an increased selection of Australian imports in the near future.

Since most European consumers do purchase organic products at local grocery stores and major supermarkets chains, compiling an exhaustive list of every European retailer offering organic products would fall outside of the scope of a single Wonder request. However, Aldi, Mueller, Tesco, and Billa/Rewe are all noted European retailers that do import organic Australian products.
