Hear from the next generation of organic producers and the champions who are helping them build their careers in agriculture. Friday’s full-day conference will focus on the innovations that are shaping our organic world.

OTA’s Annual Meeting is one of the many important events OTA has on tap for its members as part of Natural Products Expo East.
