Everyone can access amazing locally made food from the Lone Star state.
Local food is trending big time in Texas. The state's agriculture is known throughout the world and local food makers are taking advantage of the abundance to create amazing fresh and packaged products that capture the flavors, culture, and pride of the state.
The food products coming out of Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas and many other cities and regions are innovative, made with natural ingredients, and are incredibly healthy. Because of this and the demand for Texas made products, the growth of the local food movement has prospered due to the support of communities across the state.
Even local commercial kitchens serve also as business incubators for new food start-ups making it easier for those business to get off the ground. Capital Kitchens in Austin, Texas, is a great example where many businesses get their start.
The support for Texas business, agriculture, and food makers has resulted in an exciting range of products. These products are so well made that they have national audiences and of course continued demand from locals who are living out of state. Accessing these products is now easier than ever by using the Treatmo app. With a couple taps, shoppers can order from any number of Texas food makers and have their selections shipped to their home in a tap.
