The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) works in partnership with Minnesota food and beverage companies on business and market development opportunities to increase the use of Minnesota agricultural ingredients, create and protect jobs, and promote economic development in Minnesota’s agriculture and food sectors.
The Minnesota Naturally pavilion at Natural Products Expo West is one among many ways that MDA works alongside these entrepreneurs and their teams. Between March 6 and March 8, a wide range of incredible companies and products will be on display from Minnesota, including: Jonny Pops, So Good Brands, Seven Sundays, Get Bizzy, Toom, KMama, WholeMe, nomi, Superior Switchel, The Amazing Chickpea, Make it Simple, Bliss Gourmet Foods, River Hills Harvest, Smude’s, and Gray Duck Chai.
With thousands of job and career opportunities available at food and beverage companies throughout Minnesota, these brands represent a sample of the thousands of employers leading the way to the future of food.
If you’re headed to Expo West, come by and meet us, starting at the Minnesota Pavilion. You’ll also discover information about living and working in Minnesota and can interact with the Make It. MSP. team.
Plus, everyone will be ready to plug you into our community on Thursday evening at the Minnesota Mingle happy hour hosted by MDA and Grow North, the front door to accelerate and connect Minnesota’s food and agriculture entrepreneur and innovation ecosystem. Stop in and mingle with us.
