The spotlight is on local food business expansion in this year’s Iowa Local Food Conference April 8 in Ames. ISU Extension and Outreach is one of the conference sponsors.

“The one-day conference will look at issues that can impact the bottom line of local food producers and those affiliated businesses, such as the sustainability of food hubs that aggregate supplies, the benefits of processing centers for value-added products and cutting edge options for marketing,” said conference coordinator Lynn Heuss.
