Unlocking the Power of the Seed



NOPA’s mission is to assist the U.S. soybean, canola, flaxseed, sunflower seed and safflower seed processing industries to be the most competitive and efficient in the world by utilizing the combined expertise, knowledge and resources of its members to foster market- and science-based policies.


NOPA favors a market-based trading environment that encourages the efficient production of an abundant, safe, sustainable and high-quality supply of oilseeds and oilseed products for domestic and world consumers of food, feed-ingredients and renewable fuels.


NOPA’s mission will be accomplished through representation of its members’ interests in the areas of trading rules; international trade matters; and federal legislative, regulatory and biotechnology policies. NOPA will advocate for an efficient global supply chain system, by providing leadership through education, information and market-based solutions to policymakers and trade negotiators; growers; customers; suppliers; and global oilseed organizations.
