Georgia Business Intelligence, llc is an active member of the Georgia Grown program. Our values and objectives align very closely with those of the Georgia Grown program. We work with clients in rural Georgia to establish sustainable business processes enabling them to successfully prosper and grow their businesses which contributes to thriving sustainable communities.
Georgia Grown is an economic development and marketing program created by the Georgia Department of Agriculture that seeks to create desire, and increase demand for Georgia’s products. It is a statewide advocate and resource for locally grown sustainable business processes to connect buyers and sellers in Georgia’s largest industry, Agriculture.
What is Georgia Grown?
- A program for producers to join together and more efficiently bring their products to agribusinesses, institutions and consumers.
- A means for producers to connect with and learn how to package and distribute their products for large business/institutions.
- A powerful, statewide database and website that makes it easy to find agri-tourism, farmers markets and other agri-businesses by product, location and target audience
Georgia Grown positively impacts every business and community that operates from the Farm to the Table and that’s a lot of business. Georgia Agriculture is a $73B industry. It’s the state’s largest business sector and one of its most innovative and progressive industries technically. Well over half our state’s population directly or indirectly depends on the Agricultural industry for their livelihood.
When Georgia’s agriculture industry prospers, Georgia’s citizens thrive. When we spend our dollars locally with hometown producers and at area Farmer’s Markets those purchases fuel the local economy and keeps the prosperity in our local communities. Purchases of imported items sends most of the money overseas.
Our locally grown food is fresher, undergoes stricter food safety compliance, and just tastes better knowing it is grown in Georgia. Plus, remember most of those purchasing dollars stay in the community and growing businesses create more jobs to employ us, our friends, and families. What’s not to like about Georgia Grown?
