What is Indiana Grown?
Indiana Grown is an all-inclusive collaborative initiative designed to promote Indiana produced agricultural products to Indiana residents, restaurants, grocery stores, farmer’s markets, wholesalers, processors and other retail businesses.
An enhanced Indiana Grown program will increase economic activity through the sale of Indiana products, and consumers will more fully understand how their choice to purchase foods from Indiana farms will positively impact their local economy.
Indiana’s strong agricultural heritage will be preserved and thrive with the enhancement of the Indiana Grown program, which will promote nutritious locally grown foods, local employment opportunities, and economic growth, while building sustainable communities.
Hoosiers and consumers will be able to identify Indiana Grown products using four categories.
1. 100% Indiana – Products within this category must be grown in Indiana and/or all ingredients must come from Indiana.
2. Prepared in Indiana – Product ingredients can be sourced from anywhere, but 100 percent of the production must be done in Indiana.
3. Partner – To be an Indiana Grown partner, a company or institution must assist in marketing Indiana grown products and members.
4. Indiana Grown – This category applies to all other Indiana Grown members.
