The OCA Platform brings together those who grow, supply, and buy organic cotton to create the conditions for this fiber to thrive. Their global collective of brands, retailers, supply chain partners, civil society organizations, philanthropic foundations, and academics are united in their efforts to safeguard the future of organic cotton.

Their programs include the farmer engagement and development (FED) program that is moving the market and changing how brands, retailers, and the supply chain source their organic cotton - renewing trust and enabling transparency in the textile supply chain, Organic Cotton Fund that will finance large-scale quality organic cotton farmer training and allow accelerated conversion of conventional farmland to organic farming practices, and the Seed, Integrity, and Community Investment Programme (SICI) that provides enabling infrastructure for organic cotton trade by developing innovations that will evolve the sector for the benefit of all - from field to fashion.
