January 23, 2015 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
As a community, EcoFarm has worked for 35 years to convert the U.S. food and farming system to one of greater health, safety and justice. Large-scale operations that maintain integrity in their organic programs play an important role in educating consumers and providing the benefits of organics to the mainstream. Hear from Nutiva founder John Roulac about the innovative ways that his fast-growing company maintains authentic commitment to organic values through their practices and programs. Learn from Dennis Hoover, senior vice-president of Costco, about the retail giant’s recently expanded organic program and their mission to provide high quality, healthful products at affordable prices to their members. The organic marketplace continues to grow at unprecedented rates and that means opportunity for more organic farmers who can meet the demand while being true to the triple bottom line — People, Planet, and Profit.
