Vilsack was impressed with the wide range of biobased products on display at the event. “You all are helping to transition our entire economy,” he said.
He called the whole biobased products initiative over the past several years a “holistic effort, but we wouldn’t be able to do it without the great farmers in this country and without the promotion and marketing activities that we see here today.”
During his address, Vilsack talked about some of the advancements that USDA has made recently in getting other government agencies to use biobased products. Secretary Vilsack addresses Biobased Stakeholders' Dialogue
