OTTAWA, September 22, 2011 Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada ’s Organic Value Chain Roundtable (OVCRT) has formed a task force to brand the Canadian organic sector. This brand initiative will help identity the sector’s attributes in an effort to differentiate it from competing industries, and strengthen and grow the sector within Canada .
The OVCRT would like to solicit input from organic stakeholders on what communication tools are necessary to improve the organic sector.

The OVCRT is requesting members of the organic sector to participate in this 15-minute survey, as their responses are invaluable to the branding process and essential to improving and growing the organic industry in Canada . We appreciate your immediate response to this survey, which ends on October 7, 2011.
