Fiber Council

OTA’s Board has approved the establishment of an OTA Fiber Council based on OTA Sector Council Operating Guidelines.  The application for the new sector council was first reviewed by the OTA Board Community Relations Committee, which gave its support. Marci Zaroff, President of Portico Brands and Founder of Under the Canopy, submitted the request along with seven other OTA member companies that have expressed interest in participating.  The aim is to create a cohesive voice across fiber categories within OTA, and to grow the organic fiber sector overall.

OTA's Fiber Council hosted a first of its kind event in New York City, the #LiveOrganic from Farm to Home Pop-Up Shop. Read the press release
