The State of Louisiana has come up with a unique bill that rewards food service operations that source locally with a rebate of up to 4 percent.

If passed, the law could serve as a model for other states to up the stakes and get serious about supporting local growers and processors.

Please follow this link for the complete story from the Times-Picayune.

Here in New York, we may not have the seafood industry to support such a measure but there are plenty of other areas that could benefit from this type of legislation.

You Can't Rely on Word-Of-Mouth Anymore

There's never been more resources at operators fingertips to help them market and promote their business.  Not all  new technologies work for everyone, and in some sense, we are still only as good as the last meal we've served.

However, the Marketing and Promotions Blog tells the stories of real food service professionals and how they market their business. LocalFoodService.com is committed to teaching you how to leverage the internet.  It's not just some marketing jargon.  We live it everyday.

We invite marketing pros, advertising specialists, owners, operators, promotions people, association executives to share their knowledge on this topic.
