Proos: expand apple campaignPublished 11:10pm Thursday, February 9, 2012
A resolution introduced on Wednesday by Sen. John Proos encourages the state’s economic development and promotion agency to extend the highly successful Michigan apple campaign to other Michigan-grown products.
“One of the things that make Michigan agriculture stand apart nationally is the diversity of our crops and produce,” said Proos, R-St. Joseph. “Only one state produces more types of crops than Michigan, which is something we should take pride in. Given the positive reaction to Pure Michigan’s promotion of Michigan apples, it makes sense to extend this campaign to our state’s wide selection of agricultural goods.”
