OFA - Uniting the Australian Organic Industry

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

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 does not certify farmers. Our role is to work with all of the organic industry to further our common aims

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.
