Organic Trade Association Export Readiness Training

Organic Trade Association Export Readiness Training

Wednesday, May 4, 2022 - 8:00am to Wednesday, June 8, 2022 - 5:00pm

The Organic Trade Association is partnering with Goldencrest Global to provide Export Readiness Training services for new-to-export companies throughout the U.S. We repeatedly hear that companies are not ready to export when signing up for trade missions and other international activities - resulting in a weakened reputation and strained relationships with foreign buyers. The program is a detailed, 3 Module, Export Readiness Training program covering a total of 12 topics designed to get companies properly trained to export. Topics include developing an export plan, foreign market research, understanding organic trade agreements, export regulations, documentation, and more! Companies can earn an OTA branded Export Readiness Training Certificate at the completion of the 3 training modules. OTA will be incorporating our already successful export resources into the trainings.

Testimonial: “I was not sure what to expect from this training, sometimes continuing education sessions like this are well worthwhile and occasionally not as much. What was brought to the table here is enough for anyone to start exporting in a holistic, professional and educated way. The information is concise, easy to understand, delivered well (not too fast or slow) and kept us all engaged. The homework was not imposing, was direct and effective in applying the knowledge taught. I can't recommend this course highly enough for anyone who is interested in exporting and for those that already are-it was a great refresher and affirmation for me.”

NOTE: You must agree to be present for all three training sessions when you register. Up to two people can participate per company and each company only needs to register once regardless of the number of participants. If you have any questions, please reach out to Alexis Carey at
DISCLAIMER: Participation in this event is limited to companies who produce and sell USDA certified organic products of U.S. origin. This is the federal USDA regulation for participation and part of declaration you agree to when signing up for Organic Trade Association activities.  All exhibitors must complete an evaluation of the program.

Benchmarking Trust in Organic

Benchmarking Trust in Organic

Friday, May 13, 2022 - 1:00pm

Global Communications leader Edelman has published its respected annual Trust Barometer for more than 20 years. The project surveys 30,000+ consumers in 28 countries, tracking trust and credibility of government, businesses, NGOs and media. Everett Eissenstat, Edelman Global Advisory’s North America Chair will share highlights of the firm’s most recent findings on trust. We will also dive into the results of recently completed work on trust specific to the organic sector. What are the drivers and potential risks to trust in the USDA organic? What sources of information are important to these individuals? And, what assumptions and expectations do shoppers have about the meaning of organic?
