Are you hosting a demo or sampling of your product at a grocery store, coop, liquor store or other retail location where your products are sold? If so, MDA’s New Markets Program may be able to share some costs with you, so you can promote and explore more. Small Minnesota food and beverage companies are eligible for reimbursement of some labor costs and mileage (with limits, while the money lasts), to help you conduct more retail demos and go to more wholesale food shows.
More information can be found on the AGRI Tradeshow & Demo Support Program (TSP) Guidelines page.
