ATTENTION Certified Organic Handlers


A study being led by New York University and the National Center for Appropriate Technology is seeking certified organic handlers to participate in a survey. Your your input is needed on an important nationwide study funded by USDA* examining the economic issues in the organic handling sector. 

The survey has several intended benefits for the organic industry, including identification of: 
• barriers to and direction of industry growth; 
• different procurement methods, including contracting, that may reduce handler costs; and 
• supply chain challenges, such as shortages in the supply of specific ingredients. 
They would also like to hear about challenges pertaining to your business. 
The online survey should take approximately 15 minutes to complete and can be found at: 
Those responding will have the opportunity to enter a lottery for a $50 visa gift cards (10 will be awarded). 
Thank you in advance for helping us with this important study!
