The Ontario Organic Directory is launching a comprehensive report on how the organic sector is performing in Ontario,says Carolyn Young. One of the findings of the report is that parts of the sector are fragmented. Often people don’t know where to go to find what they need to make their business successful. We’re hoping
that the directory will help to change that.
In addition to a basic directory with business listings, there are also classified listings on the site, the results of which will be searchable in the directory itself. More information about how to join the directory or update a listing is available at http://organiccouncil.ca/membership.
View the directory at http://directory.organiccouncil.ca/.
The creation of the directory was funded in part by Carrot Cache, and in part through Growing Forward 2 (GF2), a federal-provincial-territorial initiative. The Agricultural Adaptation Council assists in the delivery of GF2 in Ontario.
