OFA - Uniting the Australian Organic & Biodynamic Industry

The Organic Federation of Australia (OFA) was established in 1998 as the peak body for the organic & biodynamic industry in Australia.

Our role is to work in co-operation with all sectors of industry and government to develop the Australian Organic Industry from a niche industry into a major component of Australian agriculture and deliver benefits to consumers, producers and the Australian environment.  Australia has the potential for a strong and vibrant export industry.

The OFA fulfills a unifying national role for the organic industry by representing the interests of Australia's organic and biodynamic producers to industry and governments at the local, State and Federal level.

The OFA is the only fully representative National Organic Body and includes all sectors of the industry: Certifiers, horticulture, broadacre agriculture, meat production, wholesalers, exporters, retailers, consumers, processors, IFOAM, inspectors, regional organisations, education and research.
