Project Produce Research Completed
Atten Babler conducts research in conventional commodity markets as well as in specialized markets. We recently participated in a Tri-State (Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin) initiative exploring how our changing food markets may create new economic opportunities for the region. Atten Babler was a partner in researching and writing the study along with Southwestern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission (SWWRPC) in Wisconsin and East Central Intergovernmental Association (ECIA) in Iowa. The final report evaluated the current environment, opportunities, and challenges of competing in wholesale produce markets. Our firm focused on providing economic and risk analysis related to the produce markets within the context of the broader commodity market. The full report can be downloaded here and the project background can be found at the Project Produce website.
