The Alabama Grocers Association, the Alabama Department of Agriculture and Industries and the Alabama Food Manufacturers and Producers Association has announced Buy Alabama’s Best campaign.
It will run throughout the month of September and is designed to inform and educate consumers on what products are made, produced, manufactured and/or headquartered in the state of Alabama. During these tough economic times it is important to support our local economy. Alabama food product sales have a $2 billion impact in Alabama’s economy, tax base and along with the grocery and food service industries, employ one out of every four Alabamians. A portion of the sale of participating Alabama products during the month of September will go to Children’s of Alabama to help find a cure for childhood cancer. To date, the efforts have raised over a quarter of a million dollars.
Retailers all over the state will be supporting this campaign in their stores with Alabama product displays, ads, signage, special promotions and will sell Children’s of Alabama icons to support our fight to find a cure for pediatric cancer. When consumers shop in their local grocery store, they need to look for the Buy Alabama’s Best logo under products to ensure they are buying the best products made right here in Alabama.
