The National Organic Coalition, (NOC) brings together differing interests that work to ensure that:

  • organic integrity is maintained
  • consumers’ confidence is preserved
  • policies are fair, equitable and encourage diversity of participation and access  

Membership is open by invitation from the current members to those organizations representing the following categories of interests in organic: (1) farmers and farm organizations; (2) non-profit consumer, environmental and animal welfare organizations; 3) businesses dedicated to organic integrity.

In addition to our organization members, NOC retains a group of advisors to help assist in our planning, policy development and advocacy. Our current advisors include: Harriet Behar, Roger Blobaum, Lisa Bunin, Liana Hoodes, Urvashi Rangan and Jim Riddle.
