Chapter Summary

The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) is an independent, global non-profit organization. IFOAM accepts applications for membership from processors, producers, buyers, traders, consultants, retailers, researchers, certifiers or those who are otherwise involved in the organic movement. The Federation considers itself a democratic grassroots organization. To realize its mission and address the complexity of the various components of the organic agricultural movement worldwide, IFOAM has established official committees and groups with specific purposes, from the development of standards to the facilitation of organic agriculture in developing countries. IFOAM has prioritized long-term financial stability. To strike a delicate balance between environmental and trade considerations, IFOAM has initiated efforts to harmonize national standards. The organic movement needs to address current and future challenges beginning with ensuring organic integrity and the credibility of products, namely from countries such as China and other developing countries.
