Who We Are

The West Michigan Shoreline Food Processing Initiative was established in October 2017 with support from the Consumers Energy Foundation in cooperation with the Community Foundation of Muskegon County, the City of Muskegon, Muskegon County, and many other organizations all committed to “planting the seeds of connectivity” throughout West Michigan.

Our Goal

Bundle existing local agriculture attributes with the benefits of expanding regional food processing capabilities. Position the results in a location to thrive. Food processing in Michigan has the potential for rapid growth especially in export markets.

Our Vision

There is a strong base of agricultural and food processing related activity throughout Michigan and West Michigan to include location and establishment of food processing operations, education training, and product development and incubation. What is missing is a holistic view of the sector to include alignment and integration of synergistic strategies and opportunities.

In addition, the positive results of growing the industry can become a basis for addressing economic challenges in the region. Michigan’s 300 agricultural commodities can supply products for natural food providers, ready-to-eat products, and private label markets. Export opportunities exist for raw products and processed foods that will drive economic growth.

American food products are highly sought in international markets because of their quality and safety. Food products produced using renewable energy is a marketing trend with growth potential that matches Michigan’s ability to meet this energy demand.

Why West Michigan and Muskegon

West Michigan is home to one of Michigan’s principal agricultural regions with over 5,000 farms in the surrounding area.   With a long history of food processing, the region  is a prime location for expanding and growing the sector.   Muskegon, which is centrally located within the agricultural area, is the ideal location  with its many attributes  to become a principal location for attracting some of this new growth to include the following  factors:

  • Strategic access to prime fruit and vegetable growers and proximity to other agricultural suppliers.
  • Access to underutilized waste water treatment capacity.
  • Michigan’s fresh water capacity.
  • Michigan’s growing renewable energy sector.
  • Logistic and distribution attributes — Western Michigan’s largest commercial deep water port with easy access to rails and highways. Proposed Cross Lake Shipping provides direct links to western U.S. and Asian markets.
