We'd like to thank Governor Lujan Grisham for the shout out to value added agriculture during her State of the State address yesterday. She shared that "homegrown success stories like Bueno Foods, which, with the help of a state partnership, is adding 25,000 square feet of frozen warehouse space, hiring dozens more employees and boosting sales. And like Los Poblanos, which, with the help of a state partnership, is expanding year-round manufacturing, processing and food storage -- which means they’re using more products from more New Mexico farmers and ranchers, a win-win for state agriculture and producers." Value added is a vital growth area for New Mexico, making sure that raw goods produced in our state are processed in our state, increasing revenue and job opportunities for New Mexicans.
