AMS conducts case study and survey research on emerging distribution
systems for producers of locally and regionally grown food. Sometimes called food hubs, these
systems offer critical support services for small and mid-sized producers who may be interested
in supplying food to larger volume customers, but often have difficulty meeting the requirement
of these market channels on their own. To find out more about our food hub resources, visit
or contact the Marketing
Services Division at (202) 720-8317.
