‘American Grown’ Campaign for Produce Growers

Carrie Muehling

A new campaign to encourage consumers to buy “American Grown” produce was launched at the Southeast Regional Fruit and Vegetable Conference last week.

The American Grown campaign was started with a mission to “empower growers and consumers to fight for the American farm, making our country strong economically and environmentally.”

Speakers introducing the campaign included Georgia Fruit and Vegetable Growers Association President Charles Hall, Russ Goodman with the Georgia Blueberry Growers Association, Florida Blueberry Growers Association President Ryan Atwood, and American Grown campaign director Bud Chiles.
