It's Indiana State Fair Season: New BioCrossroads Report Emphasizes Opportunities in Food and Agriculture Innovation
Date:8/2/2012

g Indiana's food and agricultural stakeholders continue," said Beth Bechdol, Director of Agribusiness Strategies at Ice Miller, and the consultant to BioCrossroads who prepared the report.  "A new organizing forum could best define opportunities for continued growth, ultimately leading to greater economic development across the state and for individual stakeholders."

A new food and agricultural forum could have a key role in:

  • Mobilizing resources to support sector growth and establishing a platform for identifying opportunities and pursuing stakeholder interests.
  • Identifying and organizing financing and access to capital for start-up firms as well as providing additional resources to support early-stage companies.
  • Defining Indiana's innovation brand and educating broad public audiences about the capabilities and resources of the sector.
  • Strengthening the educational curriculum, adding programs in K-12 and convening educational partners to match workforce requirements of the private sector with educational and training offerings.

"The combination of  tremendous agricultural production capacity and the agriculturally focused science and technology assets Indiana possesses uniquely position our state  to address and capitalize on critical global trends," said Jay Akridge, Ph.D., Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture, College of Agriculture at Purdue University. "Food and agricultural research and innovation are core strengths of Purdue and an important part of Indiana's life sciences portfolio.  We are pleased to see the results of the study point directly to expanded opportunities for economic development through more and larger scale partnerships across the state and region."

In 2004, BioCrossroads released its first study; "A Strategic Plan for Indiana's Agricultural Economy,"  focusing on the industry's growth potential based on jobs
