TAG™ is pleased to announce the partnership with Food Finance Institute (FFI)—part of the UW System Institute for Business & Entrepreneurship. Located out of Madison, WI, FFI’s mission is to help food brands, value-added farms, and food system enterprises become profitable and raise the money they need to grow. FFI provides actionable insights through trainings, events, and digital resources that empower the next generation to build, grow and sustain their businesses.

Founder and Director Tera Johnson started FFI with the mindset of creating the next generation of environmentally and economically regenerative food and farming businesses. Also, the founder of tera’swhey® and host of the Edible Alpha® podcast, Johnson participated in the full arc of creating a successful investor-financed company. From training a national network of consultants, leading Boot Camp trainings around the country, to one-on-one business consulting for start-ups, regional and national brands, FFI clients get full access to Johnson’s financial insights, guidance, and experience.

TAG™ is beyond excited to be partnering with the Food Finance Institute. We look forward to seeing where this relationship takes us.
