Organics Unlimited was proud to showcase its fresh, organic bananas at Organicology 2017, held February 2-4 in Portland, Ore. The tradeshow is put on by two organizations, Oregon Tilth and Organically Grown Company, and brings together members of the organic agricultural industry including growers, distributors and retailers, all of whom embrace sustainable farming and sustainable business practices.
Organicology is designed and brought to life by organizations that care deeply about taking organic food and agriculture to the next level. It was quite an experience for Organics Unlimited to be part of this group that together learned, collaborated and brainstormed. It was equally exciting to know that there is intense dedication to work together to solve some of the most pressing issues that affect our food system, such as sustainability. Organic growing goes hand-in-hand with sustainability, maintaining a healthy and productive workforce and financial responsibility. Therefore, Organics Unlimited and GROW organic bananas places a strong effort on sustainability. During the weekend, other discussions ranged from business management to biodiversity conservation to maintaining independent integrity.
And although there were plenty of serious, in-depth discussions, there was also plenty of laughter and camaraderie and opportunities for participants to learn through fun activities and awards. We were so proud when it was announced that Organics Unlimited had been honored with the Social Media Award!
At Organics Unlimited, we are happy and grateful for the opportunity to have participated in this event and cannot wait to see new and returning faces at the next Organicology.
