Organic Trade Association – The Organic Trade Association’s export promotion program closed the first quarter of 2019 with a flourish, and is beginning the second quarter in an equally robust way.

“The Organic Trade Association has been opening up new markets for U.S. organic products for nearly 20 years through our participation in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Market Access Program (MAP),” said Laura Batcha, CEO and Executive Director of the Organic Trade Association.  “The world’s appetite for organic just keeps on growing, and the U.S. industry can go a long way to filling that demand if we help the sector make the right connections.”

With new funding from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Organic Trade Association will lead a team this week to Toronto to participate in SIAL Canada — Canada’s biggest food trade show of the year, and one of North America’s largest gatherings of food industry professionals from around the world. The show draws over 15,000 buyers from more than 60 countries.
