Canadian Organic Retailing Practices (CORP) Workshop is an interactive way for Canadian retail staff to better understand organic consumers and how to maintain organic integrity of the goods in their store. The workshop includes organic market data, an understanding of how the organic industry has evolved, how organic certification is achieved, labelling rules and how the fundamental principles of organic integrity are best maintained in a retail setting. This workshop is critical for retail staff who want to ensure compliance and best retailing practices with Canadian organic standards.
CORP Workshop is a 3-hour training workshop. Each participant will receive a copy of the Canadian Organic Retailing Practices Manual & Guide and the COTA Organic Retailing Resource Kit to follow along during the training. Light snacks and refreshments will be served.
