“Our goal is to re-localize the food system in Chicago”


The Capitol Region Business Journal just published a very nice piece about the Wisconsin Innovation Kitchen by James Mills.

I'd like to highlight a couple specific quotes from the article. James has posted the full article at his web site, linked below.

“Our goal is to re-localize the food system in Chicago,” said Karen Lehman of Fresh Taste, a local food advocacy group that recently visited the Innovation Kitchen from Illinois. “In a city of 8 million people we’re interested in seeing more facilities like this in the food shed. They help to build more resilient communities, that promote the health of their citizens, create jobs and establish new businesses.”

And of course, with my usual subtlety: “The Innovation Kitchen is a machine to make new businesses, said Rick Terrien.”

James Mills did a wonderful job rounding up many good Innovation Kitchen stories into a single piece. Thank you for a very thoughtful presentation James.


Innovation Kitchen provides jobs, skills, markets and much more, at James Mills' site, the Joy Trip Project. Full text of the article originally published in the Capitol Region Business Journal, January, 2011.
