Working Groups

Building on the success of our Core and Rising Star CEO groups, OSC2 currently hosts five departmental working groups to support the leadership teams of our member companies. Our Finance, Operations,  Marketing, Admin/EA, and Sales working groups meet regularly and provide our members with a trusted space for collaboration, knowledge sharing, and peer support.

OSC2‘s model leverages the experience of our members, as well as trusted outside experts, to navigate the inherent challenges of growing successful mission-driven natural products companies. Each working group is co-lead by two member representatives and is supported by Lara Dickinson, Executive Director, and Michael Anzalone, Program Director.

Participating teams have the opportunity to expand their knowledge base and to build trusted relationships with our other like-minded member companies, including All GoodAlter Eco, Ancient NutritionBig Tree Farms, Bread SRSLY, California Olive RanchDang FoodsDr. Bronner’sThe Fruit Guys, Gaia Herbs, Guayaki Yerba MateHappy Family, Kuli Kuli, Lano Seco, Lotus Foods, Miyoko’s KitchenNumi Organic Tea, New Barn Organics, Numi Tea, Nutiva, Organic Valley, Patagonia Provisions, REBBL, Sambazon, Square Organics, The Town Kitchen, Treasure8, and Uncommon Cacao.
