|About Us - History of OCIA Research and Education|
OCIA Research and Education, Inc was incorporated in 2002 and has charitable status. Currently, there are six Board of Directors and one staff member. By creating a separate organization from International we can give advise to members. The accrediators do not want a certifier consulting on how to overcome certification barriers. Therefore, a separate organization was necessary in order to give member’s advise and tools.
The mission of OCIA Research and Education is to support farmer driven research, on farm and at research institutions, including exploratory and demonstration projects. We facilitate connections between farmers, researchers, consumers and decision-makers, and educate organic producers and local and global communities regarding organic farming and foods.
Our vision is to see quality organically grown crops sold to an informed consumer who realizes the benefits that their purchase makes to the health of people, society and the planet.
