Maine-sourced food in the Bangor region

Head over to the Bangor Food Hub Consortium website to read their 2016 report about opportunities for Maine-grown food.

The consortium sought an analysis of the demand in institutions, restaurants, school systems, and other entities that purchase and serve food in large quantities for locally grown and produced food products, within a 50-mile radius of Bangor…. Purchasing and sourcing activity among the fifty-three participants in this study implies that, within 50 miles of Bangor, at least 70 percent of the potential market for Maine-grown food and ingredients is unmet. Among study participants alone this conservatively equates to $5,000,000 of annual opportunity or an average of approximately $94,000 per week.
