What is Local Labeling? A new way of showing you how close to home a product we carry was produced. And soon at Yelm Food Co-op, you’ll see new labels that show at a glance where the food came from.
Local 25 celebrates the farmers, artisans, and producers who live, grow, and create in our truly unique community. These home-grown businesses are a vital part of our local economy. The Co-op is committed to cultivating the resources right here in our own backyard.
But what about communities that are our neighbors, who share in our entire region’s productivity? We’ve created two additional labels to identify these important categories:
Local WW Our “food shed,” all of Western Washington from the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean
Local PNW A slightly broader area encompassing all of Washington and Oregon
