Welcome to Organics in Manitoba -

We're Glad You Found Us!

The Organic Food Council of Manitoba and the Manitoba Organic Alliance work to grow the organic sector, gathering the vision and the resources to increase awareness, production and availability of organic food in Manitoba and beyond.

OFCM focuses on education about organics, connecting eaters with farmers, building public knowledge and encouraging a transition to organics. Learn all about OFCM here.

MOA is a collaboration of organic stakeholders - from researchers to farmers, processors to consumers, and all those in between. Members support project to grow organics, discuss issues and vote on actions to be taken to provincial and federal regulators. Learn all about MOA here.

If you still have questions as to the relative roles of MOA, OFCM and OPAM,you may wish to check the Memorandum of Understanding covering these three organization as well as the key working document that led to this MOU.

If you are wondering what MOA is actually doing, we have added a section to "About MOA" that may answer your questions.
