Food Infrastructure

Growing, Processing, and Distributing Safe, Healthy Food
What is food infrastructure?
Food infrastructure is the underlying physical, policy, and organizational structures needed for our food supply’s operation, services, and facilities.

Food infrastructure includes:

  • How, where, and what food is grown and by whom
  • How food is processed, packaged, and distributed
  • How food is marketed to and obtained by consumers
  • How we dispose of food waste


Create a vital, lasting food infrastructure that improves the health of Minnesota’s consumers, while growing the food and farm economy.
