Have you heard? Lunds and Byerly’s is your 2012 Minnesota Grown Retailer of the Year! We received this award from the Minnesota department of agriculture and Minnesota Grown. We are honored to be this year’s recipient and excited to continue bringing our customers Minnesota grown items throughout our produce departments.
The award was presented by Carrie Tollefson, Minnesota Grown Spokesperson and 2004 Olympian, to Tres Lund, CEO, Lunds and Byerly's
I would like to thank the hard working Minnesota farmers that continue to produce high quality, healthy food. Their passion for growing and their desire to offer all Minnesotans locally produced nutritious food is what makes receiving this award so monumental. I have had the pleasure to get to know many of them over the last few years and their dedication never ceases to amaze me.
