Making organic an everyday choice. Forever.
Since its inception in 2009 when the market was down 13%, the OTB has worked with one aim: to increase organic sales. We do this through our successful, award-winning consumer marketing campaigns, the latest being Organic. Feed Your Happy.
We hold a unique position as an independent, member-funded, visionary organisation, unifying over 75% of the UK organic market. Our broad membership base includes multiple and independent retailers, veg box schemes, wholesalers, brands, manufacturers, processors, start-ups, organic certifiers and publishers. We are the voice of the organic industry.
From Abel and Cole to Yeo Valley with major retailers such as Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose, independent stores including As Nature Intended, Planet Organic and Whole Foods Market, we work with all our members to grow organic. Join these OTB members and many others who value a unified organic industry with one aim: to promote and increase sales of organic.
