VIRTUAL Buyers Mission: Healthy, Natural, and Organic Products

The Organic Trade Association and Food Export are planning a virtual buyers mission in place of the event we typically host at Expo West, to take place April 13-15, 2021. Meetings will take place 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EST, but please note that some meetings could take place outside of these regular business hours to accommodate buyer time zones. While we would love to host the event in person at Expo West, we aren’t confident international travel will have resumed in time to host the wide range of buyers we typically bring to the show.

WEBINAR: Organic Newsbreaker Panel

2020 was a year of unprecedented turmoil. It featured a global pandemic, resultant spikes in unemployment, climate related natural disasters, and widespread outcry for racial justice, and was capped off by a historic and bitterly contested election. As it pertained to organic, shopping patterns were upended, workforces were stretched, legislative and regulatory progress were halted, and organic products experienced unprecedented sales. What will the coming year hold for organic, and for the overall agricultural landscape?
