The Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA) chairs the Data Task Force on the Organic Value Chain Roundtable, of which OCO is a participant. COTA has been working to expand data collection on imports and exports.

The CFIA announced in March that all imported fruits and vegetables will be tagged with a sub-code to identify products as organic.

The goal will be to expand to all imports in a phased in approach. Effective May 29th, 2019, the Automated Import Reference System (AIRS) database has been updated to add 324 new import codes for organic fruits and vegetables.
