The Northeast Dairy Business Innovation Center is pleased to announce 10 recipients of the second round of the Dairy Marketing and Branding Services Grant. Recipients spanned the Northeast region. These funds allowed processors to access professional marketing and branding services to elevate their businesses through marketing tactics, brand improvements, and overall strategy.
This $1.1 million in funds will support dairy processors at a variety of scales and product types to conduct research, packaging development, and to analyze consumer receptiveness. The research and findings of these grants will be shared by all recipients to bolster the knowledge and accessibility of new sustainable packaging solutions for the dairy industry, especially for small and medium sized processors. The NE-DBIC promotes the development, production, marketing, and distribution of dairy products through market research, technical assistance, and competitive grant rounds for dairy farmers and processors.
Mediation is an informal process where parties meet with a neutral person (mediator) who helps them negotiate their differences. Mediators don’t decide who is legally right or wrong nor will they tell you what to do. Mediation leaves the decision-making power totally and strictly with the parties. Mediators with expertise in agricultural issues are available for free in states throughout the Northeast.
