MT Sustainable Foods are the “Sweethearts” of the Food Industry

February 13, 2009

Livingston, MT – A recent round of "speed dating" is hoped to lead to long-term relationships this Valentine’s Day. Sustainable food producers and buyers recently met up in Bozeman for a round of quick meet-and-greets to make connections to get products moving between farms and ranches, and restaurants and grocery stores. And the demand for local, sustainable foods is remaining strong even in a tough economy, according to Western Sustainability Exchange executive director Lill Erickson.

"People are still committed to buying local, sustainably-produced food, and the industry is growing – even in this economy."

Erickson says commitment to sustainably-produced local foods is strong because of the high quality, and because of the bottom line. Local means lower transportation costs and less packaging.

"Sustainable practices on farms and ranches, in restaurants, by consumers, make not only terrific environmental sense, but also terrific economic sense."

A "Speed dating" and market information was part of the Exchange's "Commerce Day" earlier this month.
