Cluster Highlight: Food and Agriculture

Detroit has the most progressive agriculture movement in the country, according to Whole Foods Market CEO Walter Robb. The combination of a strong food processing and manufacturing agricultural presence with budding entrepreneurial, niche and ethnic food markets has created a unique growth environment in Southeast Michigan. The region’s strategic assets provide the basis for a food cluster, including a food processing base, warehousing and distribution network, incubator space, and available retail and food service opportunities.
