Statewide Cooperative Partnership

Local and REgional Food systems

Starting in 2020, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) joined with the University of Minnesota (UMN) on the Statewide Cooperative Partnership for Local and Regional Markets (the Partnership) with funding from the USDA Federal State Marketing Improvement Program.

The Partnership is a group of 40+ organizations that provide input on the diverse experiences of small- and mid-sized producers, retailers, and consumers across the state.
