The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) is a non-profit advocacy group for organic agriculture based in Finland, Minnesota. It was formed in 1998 in the wake of strong opposition by members of the organic industry and consumers of organic food to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's controversial initial version of their proposed regulations for organic food. The organization's members include subscribers to their online newsletters, volunteers, supporters, and 3,000 cooperating retail co-ops in the natural foods and organic marketplace.
