In consultation with SPAC, the Board has adjusted the organic sleeve allocation policy effective July 1, 2020. Previously, organic producers would be eligible for 100% of the next periods sleeve + additional share of sleeve only if the farm produced 100% of the previous periods sleeve. This utilization limit has been reduced to 90% to ensure organic producers have more stability from one period to the next.
Under the new policy, organic producers that produce 90% of the sleeve or greater in a period are entitled to the entire sleeve in the next period +additional share of sleeve. The updated organic policy guide can be found here Organic (Specialty) Policy Guide 2020.
The current sleeve allocation policy is described in the box below
|March 1||No sleeve produced||September 1||50% of available sleeve|
|March 1||≥ 90% sleeve produced||September 1||100% + additional available sleeve|
|March 1||Partial sleeve produced (< 90% sleeve produced)||September 1||50% + sleeve utilization percentage over 50%|
