Since 1972, IFOAM has occupied an unchallenged position as the only international umbrella organization of the organic world, uniting an enormous diversity of stakeholders contributing to the organic vision. Day by day we are taking the world a step closer to the mainstream uptake of organic agriculture. At the heart of IFOAM-Organics International are its 800 affiliates in more than 100 countries. In order to unify, lead and assist this a broad-based constituency in a fair, inclusive and participatory manner, IFOAM-Organics International organizes a general assembly every three years. At every general assembly, a World Board is elected to chart IFOAM’s course and to appoint affiliates to official committees, working groups and task forces on topics like the development of standards or the facilitation of Organic Agriculture in developing countries. IFOAM member organizations also establish alliances based on regional and sector specific priorities, called regional bodies and sector platforms, respectively.

The Organic Consumers Association is an online and grassroots non-profit 501(c)3 public interest organization campaigning for health, justice, and sustainability. The OCA deals with crucial issues of food safety, industrial agriculture, genetic engineering, children’s health, corporate accountability, fair trade, environmental sustainability and other key topics. We are the only organization in the United States focused exclusively on promoting the views and interests of the nation’s estimated 50 million organic and socially responsible consumers. The OCA represents more than 2 million online and on-the-ground network members, including several thousand businesses in the natural foods and organic marketplace. Our U.S. and international policy board is broadly representative of the organic, family farm, environmental, and public interest community. The OCA was formed in 1998 in the wake of the backlash from organic consumers against the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s controversial proposed regulations for organic food. Through the OCA’s (Safeguard Organic Standards) campaign, as well as the work of our allies in other organizations, the organic community over the last eight years has been able to mobilize hundreds of thousands of consumers to pressure the USDA and organic companies to preserve strict organic standards. In its public education, network building, and mobilization activities such as its Breaking the Chains campaign, OCA works with a broad range of public interest organizations to challenge industrial agriculture, corporate globalization, and the Wal-Martization of the economy, and inspire consumers to “Buy Local, Organic, and Fair Made.”
