The U.S. Organic Grain Collaboration was a pre-competitive industry effort stewarded by The Organic Trade Association and the Sustainable Food Lab. This collaboration was led by organic food companies with representatives from across food supply chains that identified the need for collaborative action to address key challenges in expanding the supply of organic grain in the U.S.
The project’s goals were to:
- Increase the number of acres and the domestic supply of organic grain in the U.S.
- Improve the productivity, profitability and market access of the organic grain farmer in the U.S.
- Improve the resiliency of organic grain production
The collaboration addressed the points in the system that improve the productivity and profitability of the organic grain farmer and reduce the barriers to entry for new and transitional farmers.
We worked directly with farmers and other stakeholders across the food supply chain in Aroostook County, Maine, and in the Northern Great Plains.
