The fast-growing segment produces more than 26,000 product lines, according to the organisation that oversees the country’s organic food standards.
Wang Yunhao, director of China Green Food Development Centre (CGFDC), said the body has expanded its coverage of produce.
"Green food covers more than 1,000 types of agricultural and processed products," Wang said.
To qualify for organic certification, producers must meet standards based on Ministry of Agriculture chemical limits.
China has reduced the quantity of chemicals used in agriculture significantly, according to official figures.
The ministry claims that farmers has cut 34m tonnes of carbon dioxide and 2.7m tonnes of urea used on average each year since 2011, on the back of a policy to standardise green food production.
