JEFFERSON CITY — The Missouri Department of Agriculture has funds available to assist Missouri producers with the cost associated with relabeling Missouri agriculture products for retail sale. The Missouri Grown Promotion Program is funded through the Missouri Department of Agriculture’s Ag Business Development Division and provides cost-share assistance to producers for the cost of incorporating the Missouri Grown logo on their product for retail sale. Funding is limited and requests for funding will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Requests must be postmarked by March 30, 2018, to be considered.
Products grown/raised by Missouri producers or further processed and packaged by Missouri businesses are eligible. Use of the Missouri Grown logo must be pre-approved by the Missouri Department of Agriculture.
Due to USDA labeling requirements for meat products, individuals or companies interested in using the Missouri Grown logo on meat products should contact the Missouri Department of Agriculture staff about use of the Missouri Grown Member logo.
