Webinar presented on September 30th, 2020 during the SIAL CANADA FOOD WEEK.

Title: Regenerative organic agriculture: What’s it all about?

The speakers:

  • Tia Loftsgard, Executive Director, Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA)
  • Sébastien Houle, General Manager, Ecocert Canada


  • With scientists estimates of only about 60 years of topsoil remaining at current practices, the need to have organic, regenerative and fair trade practices incorporated into one standard was seen as essential by the Rodale Institute who developed the Regenerative Organic Certified (ROC) program. Attend this session which will delve into the new ROC program which was piloted in Canada by Nature’s Path Foods on Legend Organic Farms (which is associated with the company). We will discuss the merits of the program yet also discuss consumer confusion around the term regenerative, which is being used by non-organic businesses currently.
