Feeding the Economy study shows $6.7-trillion impact

Twenty-two food and ag groups have commissioned a study which finds the economic contributions from the food industry were more than 20% of the overall U.S. economy this year – totaling more than 6-Trillion-dollars. The study, by John Dunham and Associates, was funded by The Goodstone Group. It considered jobs, wages, taxes and exports and broke down the data state-by-state.


The Feeding the Economy study was requested by a broad coalition of food and ag groups, including the American Bakers Association, Corn Refiners Association, Food Marketing Institute, the Grocery Manufacturers Association and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association.
