(Wyo.)-Free Database Connects Consumers To Food Sources
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming agriculture producers and processors now have a means to connect directly with potential buyers of their products.
The Wyoming Business Council Agribusiness Division has established a connection through a national food-related database.
It's called Wyoming MarketMaker.
The program is a partner of National Food MarketMaker and is part of a network of states that connects farmers, ranchers and fishermen with consumers, schools, processors, caterers, chefs, food retailers and grocery stores.
The site is not an ecommerce site and buyers must contact sellers directly.
The idea is to build a virtual infrastructure that provides buyers a means to locate food products.
National Food MarketMaker is one the largest collections of searchable food industry-related databases in the country.
Currently, 20 states have invested in this coordinated effort.
