Using existing state and federal data and Maine IMPLAN, a state-of-the-art economic modeling system, Todd Gabe, James C. McConnon Jr. and Richard Kersbergen crunch the numbers to present an overview of the economic contribution of Maine’s food industry. This includes food makers (farms, fisheries, food-processing companies) and food sellers (grocery stores, direct sales, restaurants). Each play a unique, but interconnected, role in the Maine economy and add up to significant economic impact.
