Canada Organic Trade Association
The Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA) is the membership-based association for organic agriculture and products in Canada. Our members include growers, shippers, processors, certifiers, farmers’ associations, distributors, importers, exporters, consultants, retailers and all points along the organic value chain.
COTA plays a crucial role as the Chair of the Data Working Group on the Organic Value Chain Roundtable leading on collecting data and research to assess critical organic issues and respond to the sector’s priorities. Reliable data and analysis is critical for guiding business planning, policy-making and developing long-term domestic and international strategies.
