the organic road map 2012

The Organic Road Map is an organic sector directory, compiled by Organic Alberta, which lists companies and organizations that provide products and services to those involved in the Organic Sector. For example, producers may use this document as a Road Map to find inputs such as seed and feed; services such as processing and certification; and buyers such as brokers, restaurants and retailers. Alternatively retailers may use this document to find processed and packaged products to sell, or processors may search

for organic ingredients or places to sell their product. To find a listing of all the organic producers and their products in Alberta, you can use our Online Organic Producers Directory at www.organicfarmdirectory.ca. The Organic Road Map will be available in PDF format for free on Organic Albertas website at organicalberta.org/organic-road-map and as a paper document for a small fee. To order a printed copy please contact 780-271-1116 or info@organicalberta.org
