Three things organic business people need to know about

AndrewOrganic excellence awards; biggest promotion month ever; networking events coming.  Are you and your business colleagues across these?

Whatever business you are doing in the organic market right now you need to have your teams’ heads across what’s about to arrive.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock of late you would know we are about to launch into the biggest ever Australian Organic Awareness Month. Get involved! Your levies and sponsorships we collect help cover some of the costs of this event while partnerships are enabling us to put promotions on turbo charge.

While ‘all boats will rise’ with this approach, those most engaged and active with their own markets will win the most from this. We look forward to your feedback.

2014 Hall of Fame Award winners Rosemary and Gavin Dunn with Senator Nick Xenophon.

Coming soon is your chance to nominate you or your company for one of a range of Australian Organic Excellence Awards. Last year’s inaugural event was astoundingly successful with Senator Nick Xenophon announcing winners at our annual gala dinner. This year’s AGM Annual Events are to be held at Lockyer Valley, Queensland on 27 November. Make sure you look out for future announcements for members and clients. Mark them in your diary!

We look forward to seeing you at the events in the months ahead and trust your engagement with Australian Organic is beginning to confirm that this is the place where real organic business leaders meet and network.

Our strength as an industry and market force has always been built upon our solid foundation of diversity and the celebration of our differences in market outlets, product types and even production methods. This will be on show in September and in the lead up to the Awards.

We can be proud that we have a solid backbone of National Organic Standards and a now highly recognised and respected Bud logo bolstering our market efforts and unifying us in delivering great organic products to consumers here and abroad.

Please join with us in the months ahead to bring even greater benefit to your own organic business ventures.
