The Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) has awarded $709,235 in 2022 Meat, Poultry, Egg, and Milk Processing Grants to 15 recipients across Minnesota in its first year of operation.

The grant program aims to facilitate the start-up, modernization, or expansion of meat, poultry, egg, and milk processing businesses.
