I’m passing along this survey for Michigan retail, food service, and institutional buyers to help Eastern Market as they explore an IQF (individually quick frozen) produce processing center. The researchers are happy to gather input from food buyers across the state!
Eastern Market Corporation is exploring the development of an individually quick frozen (IQF) processing center as a way of extending the season for local fruits and vegetables. We've put together a brief survey to evaluate interest from Michigan retail, food service, and institutional buyers in purchasing locally grown, individually quick frozen produce. The survey results for this study will be kept strictly confidential and only published in summary form so as not to reveal information about individual respondents. Please complete this survey by January 31, 2016. Access the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DYQJXK7
