What Is AgriGrowth?
Mission and Purpose
Advocating for Minnesota’s Agriculture and Food Sector

Formed in 1968, AgriGrowth’s strategic approach to public policy advocacy, issues management and collaboration seeks to foster long-term sustainability, competitiveness, and business growth.
AgriGrowth also strives to serve as a convener and trusted information source, bringing together its members to address critical challenges and provide solution-oriented outcomes. AgriGrowth’s industry-wide perspective is essential in a state where the agriculture and food sector is the second largest economic driver.
