Celebrating 20 years in 2019, the Colorado Proud program demonstrates the importance of promoting food that is locally grown, raised and processed in the state.
Consumers can spot the award-winning program’s logo in local grocery stores, farmers’ markets, garden centers and on restaurant menus, and know they’re eating the freshest food available, as well as supporting the local economy.
Throughout its history, Colorado Proud has satisfied the appetite for local flavor as it has continued to grow. When it started in 1999, the program consisted of 65 companies, and today is more than 2,700 members strong, including growers, food processors, restaurants, retailers and schools.
To honor the occasion, the program unveiled the 20th anniversary logo and tagline, “Buy Local. Grow Local,” and hosted several events, including an ag community tour for consumers, ag symposium for farmers and ranchers, and school program. Learn more about Colorado Proud at coloradoproud.com.
