Anaheim Convention Center, Ballrooms C&D

Please join us this year in Honoring Organic Pioneers and Future Innovators. This is our 16th annual event – a long standing tradition that kicks off Natural Products Expo West.

We are thrilled to welcome our keynote speaker Karri Stroh, longtime organic farmer and Executive Director of the Northern Plains Sustainable Ag Society. Karri will share her insight on what it means to be an organic farmer in today’s world and how our community can best support organic production in meeting tomorrow’s needs.

Our Chef will be Chris Blobaum, who will bring his extraordinary talent to fruition with a menu that mixes up timeless classic organic selections with new and innovative culinary creations of today’s organic meals.

Join a gathering of more than 300 leaders in the organic industry to Celebrate the American Organic Family Farmer! Anyone who is interested in the promotion and growth of organic agriculture in America may attend. Proceeds go to Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF). When an organic farmer succeeds, we all thrive!
