Organic Trade Association is present each year at the world’s most promising, high-value international trade shows, promoting U.S. organic products and fostering global trade. Our large, attractive exhibit includes select U.S. organic producers’ brands and sales materials. Several U.S. producers have displays at the booth, and leaders and sales executives are on-site to present to global buyers.

In addition, U.S. producers presenting at these key trade shows can request booth placement near OTA from trade show organizers – ensuring maximum trade show traffic from relevant global buyers. OTA also works with U.S. exhibitors’ marketing and booth development teams on strategies and tips for increased trade show exposure.

Contact us if you have questions about how COVID-19 is affecting these international activities.

    WEBINAR: Organic & Climate – Breakthrough Progress in the EU

    WEBINAR: Organic & Climate – Breakthrough Progress in the EU

    Thursday, July 30, 2020 - 11:00am to 12:15pm

    As part of its effort to become climate neutral by 2050, the EU's Green Deal calls for 25% of Europe's agriculture to be transitioned to organic (nearly triple the current area) by 2030. Join us to learn more about this bold effort to create a fair, healthy and environmentally beneficial food system. We'll discuss how leaders in the organic movement were able to successfully advocate for organic's inclusion in this sweeping program. And we’ll hear from organic industry participants in the farming and processing/trade sector about priorities for specific action plans to implement and achieve the sustainability targets set out in the Green Deal’s Farm to Fork and Biodiversity Strategies.

    • Esteemed Participants:
    • Karst Kooistra, Tradin Organic
    • Ariane Lotti, Tenuta San Carlo Organic Farm
    • Silvia Schmidt, IFOAM EU
    • Johanna Mirenda, Organic Trade Association (Discussion Leader)
