Enhancing Iowa's Industries: Value-Added Ag Roundtable Discussion

posted on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 in News

In addition to watching emerging industries, refining the focus of Iowa’s leading industries is also key in supporting our existing businesses as well as preparing for industry changes. IADG partnered with Corn Belt Power Cooperative and their distribution cooperatives to hold an Industry Roundtable session with leaders in value-added agriculture, specifically focused on Food Processing and Fuels and Grain Processing. Business and association leaders engaged in the dialogue, offering invaluable insights into the present and future landscapes of these focused domains, pinpointing both the impacts and opportunities for Iowa. Thank you to Grant Menke, Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, and Rachel Hahn from ISU Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) for facilitating the discussions.
