COTA announces Organic Week

Celebrations planned for September

The Canadian Organic Trade Association, with Canadian Organic Growers, is excited to announce Canada's third annual National Organic Week, a time to celebrate healthy food, safe environments and sustainable family farms and products from September 22 to 29. This year's celebration of "All Things Organic" is a great opportunity for the organic community in Canada to come together, and for retailers in particular to engage with the public. Over the last two years, Organic Week has featured events at the local, regional and national level, with 28 company sponsors and hundreds of participating retailers, chefs and public events.

There are many ways to get involved, and it costs nothing to come up with a great Organic Week idea or event. In the past, participating retailers have used Organic Week as a backdrop to a new front store display profiling organic products; organic food and drink samplings; organic garden workshops and even organized mini-farmers markets.

The Organic Week graphic banner, logo, and supporting materials (posters, shelf wobblers, info-sheets or consumer materials) are shared with participating retailers. All participating retailers are listed on the official Organic Week website (www.organicweek.ca) and events listings directories, and promoted through social media.

If you are a retailer and would like to be involved, please contact info@organicweek.ca. Remember to visit Organic Week's website (www.organicweek.ca) to find out about upcoming organic events and activities in your area.
