The Chippewa Economic Development Corporation works tirelessly to support and promote the Chippewa Valley's dairy industry, just as dairy farmers work tirelessly to provide the world with the Wisconsin dairy products we know and love. We have helped farmers explore exporting opportunities, improved their supply chain, and assisted in mentoring programs. We have even helped farmers obtain loans to implement automation equipment. The economic impact that agriculture has on the Chippewa Valley cannot be overemphasized. June is National Dairy Month, which has been nationally recognized since 1937. The Wisconsin dairy industry generates $45.6 billion each year, making Wisconsin the nation's highest producer and exporter of dairy. The Chippewa County agricultural industry contributes over $650 million to the local economy. This month, let's thank our dairy farmers for keeping the state's economy moving and [...]
There are all kinds of reasons to celebrate Economic Development Week (May 9-13), but one of the most important is to celebrate, recognize, and thank the many staff, volunteers, and economic development organizations that work diligently to build wealth in our communities. Their daily actions create more economically vibrant and livable places, as well as encourage teamwork among organizations and businesses. In the Chippewa Valley, our local governments have officially proclaimed Economic Development Week. CEDC utilizes the week to not only pat ourselves on the back but to congratulate our partners, collaborators, and colleagues for all the hard work they do. It is always productive to take a moment to reflect on the accomplishments and gather together to network and lift each other up so the mission of economic development can continue. On Thursday, [...]

It is during this week that communities across North America will celebrate, recognize, and thank the many staff, volunteers, and [...]

As an Economic Development Organization (EDO), we like to take care of the Earth while ensuring a future for the Chippewa Valley. That's why the CEDC works hard with both government and business to create the most sustainable economic development possible. Climate change will continue to affect the state of affairs in the world, and we hope to mitigate that early by taking action now. Here are some ways that individuals and businesses can ensure an economic future as well as maintain the beauty of the Earth: Collaborate with other individuals or businesses to reuse or recycle by-products. Purchase goods locally to reduce both transportation time and cost. Instead of disposing of unwanted/surplus items, pass them on to another member of the community.
