State of Origin Information

This report shows which USDA Foods products were purchased from each state. Although USDA is unable to provide state of origin information prior to ordering due to the competitive nature of the procurements, this report provides this retrospective look. If you are looking to support agricultural markets in your region, you can consider using this information to find out what products USDA often purchases from your state—keeping in mind that future procurements may not follow these trends. Remember, all USDA Foods are 100% American grown and are local to someone!
