The Canada Organic Trade Association (COTA) has a fund to promote the export of Canadian organic products worldwide. This fund provides a grant to all exporters of organic products to help cover the cost of shipping samples to foreign buyers interested in their products.
To be eligible for a grant of 50% of your shipping costs, applicants must complete a form, complete a survey outlining sales potential and provide a copy of the paid invoice for samples shipped to a buyer outside of Canada. Shipping must have taken place between June 17, 2023 and March 31, 2024. There is currently a lot of funding available, so we encourage you to contact COTA as soon as possible as all applications must be completed by March 31, 2024.
