New Local Foods Distribution Report Available

Oct. 20, 2011

A new report, "Scaling-up Connections between Regional Ohio Specialty Crop Producers and Local Markets:  Distribution as the Missing Link" published by the Center for Farmland Policy Innovation inventories the existing produce retail-distribution structure to identify opportunities, barriers and development needs associated with increasing the flow of Ohio grown fruits and vegetables to existing retailers and ultimately Ohio consumers.  The report is financed by a grant from the Ohio Department of Agriculture, the State of Ohio and the United States Department of Agriculture under the provisions of the Specialty Crop Block Grant.
