US (MO): Registration open for Mid-America Organic Conference 2017

In 2017, Mid-America Organic Association’s Conference (MOA Conference) will be hosted for the first time in Kansas City, MO, at KC Sheraton at Crown Center.

The organizers are expecting participants primarily from nine states: Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, Tennessee, Kansas and Nebraska. However, based on their experience, they expect to receive visitors from many other U.S. states as well foreign countries.

MOA’s priority is to educate and inspire farmers, retailers, consumers and legislators about the benefits of organic foods. In addition, they are dedicated to the creation of networks that increase the number of organic products available in stores and restaurants but also insure that farmers can be fairly rewarded for their effort and passion. In this sense, they will organize and mediate meetings between producers and buyers, chefs and distributors.

The MOA has always encouraged farmers and gardeners to obtain organic certifications and they will continue to provide information and guidance in this direction. However, understanding the complexities of obtaining the organic certification, the MOA has made the decision to become a verification agency, beginning in 2017. Some of the verification programs that MOA will implement include: Non-GMO and “Transition-To-Organic” certification,” as well as other types of certification. The MOA 2017 Conference will introduce the concept and process to our attendees.

The 2017 Conference also marks the expansion of the MOA’s trade show area, with the inclusion of additional vendors and a special “Poster session” dedicated to non-profits and start-up businesses.
