Meet
the Board

The Ontario Ginseng Growers Association (OGGA) is a non-profit organization representing producers of Panax quinquefolius who grow, harvest, and sell the root.

We support research into new varieties of ginseng, new production methods and harvesting advances. We develop strategic marketing directions for the industry as a whole, while working with government and industry partners to develop the growing market for North American ginseng and provide education and communication to growers, industry partners and the community.
