It would seem to me that it is not priced accordingly to its value. What could be some of the things or reasons going into this.

Organic food does cost more to grow as you pointed out, but it also doesn't last as long in the supply chain. If an organic apple goes bad faster because it doesn't have the chemical treatments that regular apples have, there's more waste. More of the stuff will die on the way to the store or have to be thrown out when it's not sold before it goes bad. More waste = more that the consumer has to pay for. You don't really think the store is going to eat those losses?

Organic production is more labour intensive with lower yields.
And people are willing to pay more for organic stuff.
