Value-added agriculture provides new ways for our regional farmers to add value to their products and increase their revenue. Transforming raw agricultural products into finished goods with a higher value diversifies income streams and reduces dependence on a single crop or industry. This approach has helped reinforce our regional economy against changing market conditions. More than that, adding value to agricultural products creates jobs in the processing, packaging, and marketing industries.
The increased revenue improves the economic well-being of our region, attracts new investment, and spurs local development. Overall, value-added agriculture delivers a more sustainable and prosperous future for northwest Florida. It's also delivered products we're proud to call our own.
Opportunity Florida can help you make the most of our regional advantages and incentives. There’s so much going on in our quiet little neck of the woods. Opportunity is here - you should be too!
