Do people really understand how food gets on store shelves?

In June, AGCO, a Duluth-based worldwide manufacturer and distributor of agriculture equipment, sponsored the International Food and Agribusiness Management Association World Forum and Symposium (IFAMA), in Atlanta.

Long a supporter of FFA and 4-H, both domestically and abroad, AGCO offers resources to expose youth to agriculture. By doing so, AGCO plays a vital role in helping to attract high quality talent to the global food and agricultural business sector.
