Oregon Organic Coalition (OOC)
The OOC directs and endorses activities that promote organic agriculture & food systems in Oregon
Oregon Tilth serves on the Leadership Council of the Oregon Organic Coalition (OOC). Formed in 2005, the Oregon Organic Coalition (OOC) is an organization designed to advance the development and growth of the organic industry and community in Oregon. This group was formed to address the lack of unified support for promoting our industry in Oregon. The OOC brings together representatives of Oregon-based constituencies, both from the organic trade and from the other stakeholders active in the organic community, to provide direction and endorsements of activities that promote Oregon’s organic industry.
Targeted projects include promoting organic agriculture research at Oregon State University and developing niche marketing programs for Oregon organic industries.
Oregon Organic Coalition, Inc. is a trade organization, the purpose of which is to advance the development and growth of organic agriculture in Oregon, as well as other related purposes within the scope of Section 501(c)(6) of the Internal Revenue Code, and to engage in any lawful activity for which non-profit corporations may be organized under Oregon law.
