Use of this logo requires that products are grown, come from, or are derived from crops or animals in the state. Products that are raw ingredients - such as meat, eggs or lentils - but have been minimally processed (washed, sorted, packaged), are still considered a Grown in Montana product. Members who grow a product, but also enhance or substantially transform into a food mix or clothing product, can choose to use both Made in Montana and Grown in Montana logos.

Access to Made in Montana logos

Placing the logo on your products, signage, or marketing materials lets buyers know you are selling genuine products and you are proud to be Made in Montana. The program encourages consumers to choose products with labels through a coordinated marketing campaign of direct advertising, social media, and other innovative ideas.

Producers can purchase low-cost logo labels or use the electronic image to print the logo directly on product packaging. Retail stores, distributors, and restaurants are eligible to use the logo on their signs, menus, and brochures, but only producers are eligible to place logos on actual products.
