BAV is proud to be the Key Partner with 1Berkshire to help implement strategies from the new Berkshire Blueprint 2.0 for the Food and Agriculture cluster with other partners and stakeholders. The Berkshire Blueprint 2.0 is he regional economic development roadmap for the Berkshires that centers on five key sectors that drive the economy, with Food and Agriculture as one of them.

Key action steps identified include expanding food processing and distribution capacity to grow markets; sparking the next generation of entrepreneurs and social innovations in farm/food businesses; and building the Berkshire brand as a destination for food, culinary and farm-to-table authenticity.

We are excited for the work ahead! To learn more about this important cluster, and BAV's involvement, visit the Food and Agriculture Cluster details page .
