Expo West Round Up - Trends, Awards, and Non-GMO

Over 2,700 companies exhibited at this year’s Natural Products Expo West. CCOF-certified members were well represented. For instance, on the main floor you could start the morning off with some tea from Traditional Medicinals, wander over to the Lundberg booth for rice cakes, stop at Straus for some cheese to put on that rice cake, wash everything down with a new yerba mate drink from Guayaki, and finish up with one of the new flavors of Three Twins ice cream. Those were just the companies close to the CCOF booth!

Every Drop Counts: Technology to Make the Most of Limited Natural Resources

Farmers across the Western United States are struggling to meet challenges posed by one of the worst droughts in U.S. history. Farming is inherently risky, but the current drought combined with increasingly extreme weather patterns is testing the mettle of many.

Organic farmers have always employed creative measures to increase their on-farm environmental sustainability, and in this month’s feature article, “Every Drop Counts”, you’ll learn about the many ways CCOF-certified members are employing innovative water technologies to cope during the recent water-scarce season.
