Organic Trade Assoc. says ‘handful’ of big ag trade groups attacking proposed regulations
by Sustainable Food News June 16, 2016
The Organic Trade Association (OTA) has launched an advocacy campaign urging its 8,500 members to tell their congressional delegations to vote against any amendments that may jeopardize controversial, proposed regulations aimed at updating organic livestock and poultry welfare standards.
The Washington, D.C.-based trade group said “a handful of conventional agricultural trade groups are attacking [the proposed] organic standards. Tell Congress to vote no on amendments that peck apart the USDA organic label.”
OTA explained that the new campaign, titled “Do Not Play Chicken with Organic Standards,” is meant to convey the message that “any action that undermines the process that safeguards the [USDA’s] National Organic Program (NOP) should be opposed.”
