Humboldt Made began in 2008 with an idea from the Specialty Food, Flower & Beverage industry cluster, and was developed with guidance from business owners of some of Humboldt’s most successful brands (e.g. Lost Coast Brewery, Cypress Grove Chevre, etc). The purpose is to increase export sales of Humboldt Made products, and grow jobs and businesses located in Humboldt County. Today, the Humboldt Made brand primarily supports and includes members from the Specialty Food, Flower & Beverage and the Niche Manufacturing industry clusters. There are significant opportunities for collaborative marketing with Tourism and Forest Products.
