Regional food, beverage branding workshop March 7

The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission will conduct the meeting from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 7, in the Sycamore Room at Fauquier Hospital.
The Rappahannock-Rapidan Regional Commission will conduct a March 7 meeting in Warrenton to get public input for development of a brand name and logo for the region’s locally-grown food and beverages.

The brand will be used in a regional marketing campaign funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Sycamore Room at Fauquier Hospital.
After presenting consumer survey results, participants will discuss the five-county region’s assets and challenges. That will help the commission determine what sets the region’s locally-grown food apart from the competition and build a stronger brand. There will also be an opportunity for participants to voice their concerns and preferences about the brand.
This effort continues the commission’s on-going implementation of the 2015 Regional Farm and Food Plan, which the Warrenton-based PATH Foundation has funded.
