Primary Product

Primary products for promotion are submitted to state executive at their November meeting by each group. The representatives give a two minute presentation on their group's choice. All members of executive then vote for the winning product. All products presented to the members of state executive must be concerning an industry that is having difficulties or be a boutique industry. This promotion is not a part of the Agricultural & Environmental committee arena but is driven by the group that had their product selected. Often if there are several groups who chose the same product then they will join forces to make the display at state conference happen. Usually the Branch and Group Agricultural & Environmental Officers do the local promotion as a part of their portfolio. Announced in December each year.

Primary Product 2019: Honey
