As part of National Manufacturing Day, Yolo County Congressman John Garamendi hosted Domestic Manufacturing and the “Make It In America” Agenda in Woodland California on October 7. At the event, Garamendi announced the award of a new USDA Rural Business Development Grant to Valley Vision for the Central Valley AgPLUS Food and Beverage Manufacturing Consortium. The grant will benefit food and beverage manufacturers in the Central Valley through business procurement workshops.
“Central Valley is the biggest agriculture area in the world. As we expand our Ag sector, we have to make sure that leads to manufacturing jobs,” said Garamendi.
