Food Alliance Midwest has established certification programs in Minnesota and Wisconsin to indicate when products were grown using environmentally and socially responsible practices. This project considered how to expand the certification process to Iowa.
Is there a way to coordinate the marketing efforts of all types of niche products produced in Iowa and supplement each other's efforts?
Food Alliance Midwest could be the vehicle that would cross all types of products that are produced in Iowa. It has a recognizable presence across the United States and its value could be leveraged across many of the niche food products that are produced in Iowa today.
