Whether you're a start-up or an established company looking for new markets, we can help.  Our assistance is targeted to value-added agricultural companies, those who either grow the product and process it or those who use Montana agricultural ingredients in their processed products. We also assist those who grow specialty crops to sell as fresh products to Montana's consumers, food service, and groceries.

 

We've also contracted with Montana Food and Agriculture Development Centers, a network of small business assistance professionals across the state.
