Abstract: The organic industry in Canada is growing and Alberta organic grain producers have expressed a concern that the marketing system for organic grains in Alberta is poorly organized. This poorly organized system may hinder producers from optimizing market potential. This paper assesses different organizational structures that might assist Alberta organic grain producers in optimizing market potential. The authors identified five marketing strategies for review including two individual strategies – private company and sole proprietorship, and three collective strategies – new generation cooperative, association and private company. Producers, industry and government representatives identified the primary obstacles to marketing organic grain in Alberta as a lack of price and market information, poor communication, lack of government involvement, constraining regulatory bodies, lack of consensus on standards, and lack of local marketing infrastructure. Primary opportunities were identified as growing demand in the industry, the organic premium obtained from this high income niche market and the potential to work collectively. Focus group discussions showed a lack of cooperation in the market, which appears to stem from a lack of trust between participants in the market. The implications are that producers appear to want the benefits of working collectively, but unless they are willing to work together, an individual strategy may be the only option. All producers are currently using the individual strategy and appear to favor it because it involves no delivery commitment or financial investment. However for producers who are wiling to operate in a collective fashion, the discussion results suggest that organic grain producers can best address the critical success factors with a marketing association. Although the association appears to be the choice of each of the focus groups, it is still constrained by a perceived lack of willingness to develop a more formal structure. (abstract written by S.
