Organic Friends' E‑zine: April 2018

What's your pick? Take survey now.

The Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA) has been mandated by the Organic Value Chain Roundtable (OVCRT) to update the campaign previously called "Think Canada Organic". Based on recent consumer research compiled by COTA, consumer perceptions regarding organics have shifted since the inception of the Think Campaign.

It’s a call to action for everyone along the organic value chain - consumers, farmers, food manufacturers, retailers, chefs, communities - not to just Think Before You Eat, but to actually Choose Canada Organic!

The campaign has always counted on input from consumers and industry alike, and so you are being called on to get in on the ground floor of this redesign and help select the new logo for the Choose Canada Organic campaign!

Survey closes May 1st, 2018. Click here to take the survey.
