State Profiles of Produce Across America
There’s an old saying that “all politics is local.” That means while our industry is tackling broad issues at the national level in Washington, D.C., the real impact of government decisions plays out in your own state and local communities. There’s no more important way for you to let your elected representatives see the impact of their decisions than to show them facts on their local area.
To help communicate our industry’s influence and how issues we’re addressing in Washington affect your community, United Fresh has developed a series of state profiles with important data about the impact of our industry in each state.
Click on each state below to find a comprehensive profile of how the fruit and vegetable industry impacts your state. Included in the profiles of all 50 states are employment rates, numbers of produce companies, farmers markets, total farm value, fruit and vegetable acreage, as well as state participation in federal fruit and vegetable programs.
