Tickets are NOW AVAILABLE for this amazing all-organic feast! For twenty years running, OFRF’s kick-off to National Products Expo West has drawn hundreds of leaders from across the organic industry. Please join us as we celebrate this special anniversary in an exciting new venue, the state-of-the art City National Grove of Anaheim. Celebrity chefs Chris Blobaum and Donna Prizgintas, assisted by chef Beth Miller, will once again prepare a fabulous all-organic feast.



We are very excited to have Dr. Kathleen Merrigan, Executive Director of Sustainability at George Washington University, as our keynote speaker this year. From 2009-2013, Kathleen was U.S. Deputy Secretary and Chief Operating Officer of the USDA. Before joining the USDA, Kathleen was senior staff on the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, where she wrote the law establishing national standards for organic food.

Recognizing the history and scope of her work, Time Magazine named Dr. Merrigan among the “100 most influential people in the world” in 2010. An early OFRF Board Member, Dr. Merrigan currently serves on the OFRF Advisory Committee.





The City National Grove of Anaheim is just 1.5 miles away from the the Anaheim Convention Center. Shuttle service will be provided—please meet in front of the Anaheim Marriott (700 Convention Way) for shuttle pick up.
