Organization for Competitive Markets (OCM) is a membership-based research and advocacy organization working to expose and break the stranglehold of corporate consolidation in our food and agricultural economy. The mission of OCM is to work for transparent, fair and truly competitive agricultural and food markets. Former President Theodore Roosevelt, whose likeness graces our masthead, was known as the original Trust Buster. He advocated and enforced the first antitrust laws and fought for true competition and entrepreneurship throughout America. OCM seeks to reinvigorate his legacy of antitrust law and competition policy.
Establishing competitive markets in agriculture for farmers, ranchers and rural communities is our goal for America. True competition reduces the need for economic regulation. OCM’s mission, and its duty, is to define and advocate the proper role of government in the agricultural economy as a regulator and enforcer of rules necessary for markets that are fair, honest, accessible and competitive for all citizens.
