Hungry to expand your customer base?

Look no further than Missouri.

Missouri’s robust food solutions industry includes nearly 400 companies and almost 100,000 farms, with the capacity for many more. This is all due to Missouri’s leading role in agricultural products such as rice, soybeans, corn, sorghum, cattle, turkeys, and hogs.

In fact, Missouri’s agriculture industry generates $94 billion in sales and supports more than 456,000 jobs. Missouri gives companies in the food & beverage industry rapid access to global markets, extensive distribution options, a friendly regulatory environment and access to a diverse customer base.

Raise A Glass

Most people know about Missouri-based Anheuser-Busch, which almost ten years after its acquisition by InBev remains a force as a world leader in brewing. But many people don’t know Missouri’s craft beer production is on the rise and gaining popularity worldwide. Missouri companies like Boulevard Brewing Co., Mother’s Brewing Company, Schlafly, Urban Chestnut, and more are producing hundreds of thousands of barrels of craft beer each year.

130+ wineries, 30+ distilleries, 110+ breweries

Missouri is home to the first American Viticultural Area (AVA) in the U.S., and was at the center of U.S. winemaking long before Napa was imagined over a glass of vino.

Add to that a growing cluster of distilleries, and Missouri is certainly making it easier to toast the future.

Our state gives your company immediate access to global markets, extensive distribution options, a friendly regulatory environment, and close proximity to a diverse customer base.
