the more you know…the more you grow


It’s no secret that we here at Foerstel have a passion for all things organic.  As a design firm dedicated to sustainable practices for over two decades, we provide food companies with beautiful and effective packaging that complies with organic food industry standards. As such, we are honored to be asked to partner with CCOF and OES for a second consecutive year.

Founded in 1973, the California Certified Organic Farmers Association (CCOF) was one of the first organizations to perform organic certification in North America. In addition to being a full-service organic certification and trade association, the CCOF has been a leading provider of information, resources and advocacy for organic food and agriculture for more than 30 years.

With their latest Organic Labeling webinar around the corner,  CCOF is preparing to give insight into the most common mistakes companies make with their organic labels. Because of our knowledge, experience and commitment to the industry, we were asked to provide a variety of packaging images, tailored specifically to enhance their presentation. This educational event will use our real-world examples as a resource in defining a step-by-step process for developing labels that comply with the USDA National Organic Program.

If you are planning to update your organic label or create a new product line, you won’t want to miss this informative event.

Webinar Dates:
Wednesday, May 9, 1:00-2:30 p.m. PST
Wednesday, May 16, 9:00-1:00 a.m. PST

Tom Foerstel : Founder & President

Tom Foerstel

Founder & President

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the 60’s, Tom developed a strong desire to create positive change for people and planet.

He went on to pursue his passion for art and design at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and worked for design firms in Southern California before moving to Boise, Idaho in the early 80’s. Foerstel Design opened its doors in 1985. Since its inception, the firm has cultivated a bold, happy, forward-looking team focussed on creating distinct and effective work on behalf of their clients.

An integral part of Tom’s philosophy is giving back to the community in which he lives — a company cornerstone that drives Foerstel’s long history of providing pro-bono services to local non-profit humanitarian and arts programs.

One of Tom’s proudest personal achievements is his ability to say Supercalifragilisticexpyalidocious backwards.
