Goodness Grows In North Carolina

Foodservice Marketing

Send E-Mail to tim Parrish- Foodservice Marketing Specialist

When you eat out, are you eating products raised or processed right here in North Carolina? That's what we hope you are doing every time you go to a restaurant. Whether it's fast food or fine dining we encourage our North Carolina restaurants to buy NC and serve these great items to their customers.

The Foodservice Marketing section works with restaurants, chefs and food distributors to promote North Carolina food items. Next time you eat out, look for materials with the Goodness Grows in North Carolina logo and you will know you're enjoying products grown and produced by North Carolina farmers. That means it's not only the Best Tasting, it's also the Freshest available!

Retail Marketing

Fill your grocery cart full of North Carolina products! That's what our Retail Marketing section hopes you'll do every time you grocery shop. North Carolina is home to a wide variety of grocery stores that offer a number of North Carolina items from which to choose.

The Retail Marketing section works with grocers to purchase and promote North Carolina products. Local items may be identified by the Goodness Grows in North Carolina logo. When you see that logo in a food ad, you'll know that the advertised item came from a local grower - maybe one of your neighbors!

Our Domestic Marketing staff assists North Carolina producers and food companies with buyer contracts, developing new markets and increasing their sales. Let us know how we can help.
