Are you a business in organic produce or looking for a plethora of organic produce products? The Organic Produce Summit is the only event dedicated exclusively to bringing together organic fresh produce growers, shippers, and processors with retail and buying organizations from across the globe. OPS 2023 will be held at Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, California from July 12-13, this summit will include a selection of field tours for retailers and buyers, a gala opening night reception, and a sold-out trade show floor featuring over 170 producers and processors of organic fresh produce from across North America and around the globe. 


 OPS will have the Strengthening Organic Enforcement (SOE) session discussing the rule that went into effect on March 20 of this year, and the impact businesses have until March 19, 2024, to comply with its requirements. In this SOE session, OPS attendees will hear from leaders from across the organic produce supply chain about how their operations and how they are getting ready to address the most impactful changes before the 2024 implementation. The session will be moderated by Gwendolyn Wyard, Organic Trade Association’s VP of Regulatory Affairs. The SOE rule is the biggest update to USDA organic regulations since they were first published in 2000, and its aim is to bolster organic integrity and consumer confidence in the USDA. Be sure to attend this session for insight from organic leaders!
