Produce Council

The Organic Trade Association’s Produce Council is a community of diverse stakeholders across the organic produce value chain that convenes on issues of importance to the organic produce sector. The Council amplifies the needs of the produce community within OTA and serves as a venue for shared learning and advancing outcomes to support a thriving and resilient organic produce sector.

The Organic Trade Association’s Produce Council is open to OTA members that participate in or otherwise support the value chain for organic produce. The Council’s primary focus is organic fresh market fruits and vegetables. Other specialty crops with shared interest in produce sector issues such as crop production, perishability, or other supply chain issues may also be included.” Any OTA member, falling within the defined scope of the Council, may join the initiative. If you are interested, please contact Johanna Mirenda.

Learn more about how the Council came to be and our foundational members.
