Indiana Grown is a membership initiative to recognize all the great things “grown in Indiana.”
Requirements for membership are to offer products that fall into one of these categories:
- 100% Indiana – Products within this category must be grown in Indiana and/or all ingredients must come from Indiana.
- Prepared in Indiana – Product ingredients can be sourced from anywhere, but 100 percent of the production must be done in Indiana.
- Partner – To be an Indiana Grown partner, a company or institution must assist in marketing Indiana grown products and members.
- Indiana Grown – This category applies to all other Indiana Grown members.
