OSA invites companies in the organic sector to support our work through our recently launched business membership program. Today we’re proud to feature one of these members and a long-time partner: Organically Grown Company (OGC).
OGC is the largest organic produce distributor in the Pacific Northwest. Working with more than 340 organic growers, with nearly one-third of them located in the Pacific Northwest, OGC is known for its role in cultivating rich relationships with growers and curating a diverse organic product line.
Since 2010, OSA and OGC have been breeding a new variety of purple sprouting broccoli. The organic variety is being developed to withstand winter and provide early harvests at a time when fields are mostly bare and stores have little local produce to sell. OGC understands that investing in organic seed goes beyond planting season and extends to healthy food, diversified farms, and economic opportunities for their growers.
Between collaborating on research in the field and co-hosting the biennial Organicology conference, OSA counts OGC among the top businesses committed to advancing organic seed for the good of their growers and as a driver of positive change in our food and agricultural systems.
