BIO RELEASES REPORT "WHAT IS THE FOOD AND AG INDUSTRIES' IMPACT IN YOUR COMMUNITY?"
Source: Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO) news release

America's food and agriculture sectors feed the economy and fortify the nation. Together, they are responsible for roughly one-fifth of the country's economic activity, directly supporting nearly 20 million jobs; that equals more than 13% of US employment.

It begins in the rich soil of America's farms and ranches - more than 2 million of them - spread across the heartland and stretching to the coasts, covering two out of every five American acres.

Meanwhile, millions of food scientists, grocers and truck-drivers work in more than 200,000 food manufacturing, processing, and storage facilities, to keep food fresh and deliver it on time.

The journey may conclude at one of the nation's many restaurant locations or make its way from retail grocers to American homes where families are grateful for the nation's bounty.
