Organic Processing Institute expands organic opportunities

June 28, 2012 | 0 comments

The Organic Processing Institute (OPI) is working in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa to forge links among organic farmers and processors to help overcome barriers and ensure sustainable success.

Organic processors face barriers such as: licensing, inspection, and other regulations; lack of financial support for local food system expansion; limited training resources for new and beginning workers and entrepreneurs; low profit margins in the food processing sector; and the seasonality of much local processing.

As a nonprofit, OPI will provide services to innovators, farmers, expanding processing operations, and business start-ups that strive to add richness, choice, and magnitude to the value-added organic options in the marketplace.

They will help producers with referrals, networking, and information for: permit requirements; development of recipes and labels; financial documents; finding organic processors or adding on-farm processing operations; and adding organic lines to existing conventional facilities

The OPI website, http://organicprocessinginstitute.org," target="_blank">organicprocessinginstitute.org, provides links to essential resources and will document case studies in a series called "Pathways to Processing."

For more information or to join the mailing list, visit the website at http://organicprocessinginstitute.org or call 608-833-5370.
