Made in Minnesota: Building cross-cultural commerce

The tastes of immigrant communities represent new economic opportunities for Minnesota.

A new video from MN2020 highlights the economic opportunities for Minnesota represented by the state’s immigrant communities. For example: teff grain that is so popular among East Africans can be grown in Minnesota and ground in the state’s mills, to be sold at markets run by immigrants throughout the state. The video accompanies a new report on the same topic.
