About Us

The Colorado Department of Agriculture developed Colorado Proud in 1999. It is a FREE marketing program designed to help consumers, restaurants and retailers identify and purchase Colorado food and agricultural products. More than 90% of Coloradans would buy more Colorado grown and produced products if they were available and identified as being from Colorado. The distinctive Colorado Proud logo helps residents of our state, other states and other countries easily identify Colorado food and agricultural products.
