United Fresh 2015

Monday, June 8, 2015 - 7:15pm to Wednesday, June 10, 2015 - 8:00pm

The United Fresh 2015 Show will be held from June 8-10 in Chicago, IL. OTA's CEO/Executive Director Laura Batcha will deliver a presentation titled "Why an Organic Check-Off Program?" on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 from 12:15 - 1:00 PM in the Fresh Tech Learning Center - Hall B, Booth #2650. 

Why an Organic Check-off Program?
In this late-breaking session, hear from the Organic Trade Association (OTA) on why the association has petitioned USDA to create an Organic Research and Promotion Order. OTA CEO/Executive Director Laura Batcha will explain OTA’s goals for a mandatory, industry funded check-off program, how it would work for organic produce growers and handlers, and what impact OTA believes it can have on the organic industry. This is your chance to ask questions and understand how this program may affect you.
