Immediate Wholesale Market Need Survey
This survey is for Minnesota producers whose existing wholesale markets were lost due to COVID-19 closures (schools, colleges, restaurants, etc.). This survey was created by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture in partnership with the Minnesota Grocers Association. Information collected will help identify if there are appropriate alternative wholesale buyers to make up for this unprecedented impact on our local and regional food systems supply chains. Completing this survey is voluntary and responses will not be shared beyond the Minnesota Grocers Association and Minnesota Department of Agriculture. We hope to identify opportunities for producers to reach alternative markets for the products they now have on-hand that had previous commitments for imminent purchase. However, there is no guarantee that a successful alternative purchasing relationship will be identified despite these efforts.
