(JEFFERSON CITY) – Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson will launch a new statewide program called “Buy Missouri” next week. The program will recognize and promote products made within the borders of Missouri while strengthening the state’s economy.

“Our state has hundreds of quality products, and deserve the recognition that Buy Missouri will bring to them”, said Lieutenant Governor Mike Parson. “This kind of project has never been done on this scale in our state’s history, and we believe by promoting Missouri products ranging from barbecue sauce to windows to pet food, our economy will be strengthened. This is a win-win for Missouri manufacturers and consumers alike”, Lieutenant Governor Parson said.

A statewide fly around will take place next Tuesday and Wednesday to ten communities across Missouri. Details are forthcoming on locations and times. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
