Fresh on the Menu

Fresh on the Menu, the second phase of the Certified SC program, was launched in February 2008. Fresh on the Menu and all phases of the Certified South Carolina campaign have been established with one main objective – to increase the per capita income of rural South Carolinians through the generation of agricultural commerce. By providing consumers with the ability to easily identify, find, and buy South Carolina products, we are meeting that goal.

Restaurants throughout South Carolina  have become partners in the effort. Participating chefs agree to prepare menus that include at least 25% Certified South Carolina Grown foods and products in season and feature the Fresh on the Menu brand. These chefs recognize the value in supporting local for not only their bottom lines, but also for the difference South Carolina local products and produce make on the taste of food. After all, Nothing's Fresher. Nothing's Finer.
Fresh on the Menu is a commitment to provide South Carolina citizens the freshest products and produce from some of the nation's best restaurants. This program will work to use our greatest resources to help to ensure that South Carolinians can act progressively and think competitively in the global economy of our future. The South Carolina Department of Agriculture challenges all South Carolinians to support, ask for and remember 
"Locally grown." It's to dine for.  Click this link for restaurants in your area.
