Grow & Fortify Summit

The Future of Value-Added Agriculture

December 6, 2018 • Kent Island

 

Scheduled for Thursday, December 6, 2018 on Kent Island, Grow & Fortify's Value-Added Agriculture Summit will bring together an estimated 200+ attendees for this second time event. Meet Maryland’s robust and diverse value-added agriculture industry, which includes everything from apples, ales, agritourism and angus. Following up on a very successful 2016 Summit, the Grow & Fortify 2018 event would continue to focus on supporting and promoting Maryland’s value-added agricultural producers, growers, agritourism operations and small food businesses.

Presented by Grow & Fortify, Rural Maryland Council and MidAtlantic Farm Credit, the focus for 2018 will be Innovation, Emerging & Potential Markets and Sales & Distribution Channels. In addition to other components, we’ll be including AgPitch - a Shark Tank-style business competition, sponsored by MidAtlantic Farm Credit, for entrepreneurs to present their agriculture business ideas before an audience to compete for cash and related business services.

Attendees will include value-added agriculture producers and small food businesses, state and county agency representatives (Planning & Zoning, Fire & Life Safety, Health, Economic Development Offices, Tourism, Commerce, Environment, Natural Resources, and Agriculture), state and county elected officials, food and agriculture organizations, media and bloggers, and food policy organizations.
