What is OCO?

The Organic Council of Ontario is the voice for organics in Ontario. Our members are the organic farmers, processors, businesses, and supporters who bring organics from the field to your fork.



OCO works with government figures to ensure that agricultural policy and legislation meet the needs of Ontario’s organic producers and businesses.


Demand for organic is high. OCO supports Ontario’s organic industry in order to build its capacity and supply more Ontarians with organic.


OCO works to create an interconnected network of organic producers, processors, scholars, consumers and supporters.
