One vivid example comes from Papa George’s food products, based in Stillwater, which has recently expanded from serving lower-fat sausage products and ethnic foods for the Upper Midwest to an international food exporter.
Local vineyard operators and wineries that have taken Minnesota-bred grape varieties and are creating an exciting cold-climate wine industry for Northern states and adjacent provinces of Canada provide another example.
