Supporting Membership is for organic businesses that want to grow and thrive.
As a Supporting Member you receive additional benefits that make your membership go further.
Our membership includes input suppliers, producers, distributors, marketers, co-packers, retailers, food service, importers, consultants and/or certifiers who have significant business in the Ontario organic market. Membership is subject to approval by staff. If you are unsure whether your business can be a member, please contact us.
Producers and businesses who support the organic sector, but are not certified, may join the Ontario Organic Directory by becoming a Supporting Member.
We understand that money can be a barrier to membership. Please contact us if you would like to discuss other ways to support OCO in exchange for membership.
