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 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.
