The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) works closely with Minnesota food companies to help promote their products, find buyers and markets, and otherwise provide market planning and assistance. Staff in the Agricultural Marketing and Development Division:
MDA is currently in the process of updating the in-house food and agricultural products database, called TRADIRS.
The purpose of TRADIRS is to support Minnesota food companies’ marketing efforts by linking wholesale food and ag product buyers, to suppliers, and enabling B to B exchange between Minnesota food companies. TRADIRS is used as an online searchable database, and as a resource for staff to direct inquiries for products from foreign and domestic buyers. In short, it allows us to connect buyers to Minnesota food and other agricultural products, such as pet food.
If your company offers a Minnesota food or value-added ag-product, please click on the web-based survey to have those Minnesota products included in the MDA’s TRADIRS database.
