In order to meet its goals, OCA needs to be directly involved with the organic cotton supply chain in India and thus a Program Coordinator is essential to grow and develop. In comes Jaskiran Warrik, bringing rich experience in working with supply chains to create sustainable commodities in India – she has previously worked in value chains for cotton, spices and table grapes. Jaskiran is passionate about working directly with projects to see first-hand the impact of the collective action of brands and partners. With degrees in psychology and a specialized master’s degree from Bocconi University in Milan on Green Management, Energy and CSR, she fits well into our team and our long term vision for OCA.

Jaskiran is not the only new secretariat member: also Rowena Achterkamp (Program Officer Sector Vision), Matthijs Maas (Program Officer Sourcing Pilots) and Eva Schouten (Communication Officer) joined Hilde van Duijn, Bart Vollaard and Jennifer Morton in the OCA-team. With fresh additions to the secretariat team, OCA plans to keep the pace in accelerating organic cotton globally!
