  No, some of the information is for internal use only.  Questions about sales volume and the characteristics of business owners are not published on the site.  Please view a business profile to see what information is published on SavorWisconsin.com.
 
  Why should I register my business on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  SavorWisconsin.com is the most complete online database of Wisconsin food and agricultural businesses.  Registration is completely FREE.  Plus SavorWisconsin.com is visited by over 35,000 people each month that can easily search for and view your business profile. 
 
  What do I do if I forget my username and password? Top
 

If you forget your password, return to the registration page by clicking on the "register/edit profile" icon on the home page of SavorWisconsin.com.  Click on "I forgot my password."  You will be asked to enter the primary phone number of your business.  You will then be prompted to answer the password reminder question that you supplied when you created your profile.  If you answer the question correctly, your username and password will be e-mailed to the authorizing e-mail address on the profile.  If you are still experiencing difficulty, please contact the website administrator at DATCPSavorWisconsin@wisconsin.gov.

 
  How can I change the information listed in my profile? Top
 

To change the information in your profile, click on the "register/edit profile" icon on the home page of SavorWisconsin.com.  Log in with the username and password you created when you registered your business.  Six information categories will appear, and you can click on those categories to change the information listed in your profile.  When you have made a change to your profile, be sure to click the "submit" button at the bottom of the page to save your changes.

 
  Are businesses automatically listed on the site after registration is completed? Top
  There is a website administrator at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection who reviews business profiles before they are approved for listing on the site.  If your business is approved, you will receive an automatic notification from SavorWisconsin.com.  If additional information is required, you will be contacted by the website administrator.
 
  Do I have to register my business on SavorWisconsin.com each year? Top
 

No, you only have to complete a business registration one time.  Businesses are, however, encouraged to update their information as often.  SavorWisconsin.com may send periodic reminders to businesses asking for profile updates.

Farmers' Markets, however, do need to be registered each year.  This is due to change of venues, times and start dates. 

 
  How do I register a business on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  First, click on the "register/edit profile" button.  There you should determine if your business is a producer, processor, or manufacturer of Wisconsin food and agricultural products.  These types of businesses should complete the "producer" registration; restaurants, specialty retailers, and food cooperatives should complete the "restaurant" registration.  Click on the appropriate profile for your business type and select the blue bar labeled "Create New Registration."  Producers will go through six screens of questions; restaurants and retailers will go through four.  Registration will take approximately 20 minutes.  Several help icons are located throughout the registration pages to assist you if you have questions.  Your registration is not complete until you have selected the appropriate county from the county listings.
 
  What types of businesses should register on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  Consumers are hungry for a taste of Wisconsin products.  All businesses that produce, process, and manufacture Wisconsin food and agricultural products are welcome on SavorWisconsin.com.  This includes all types of businesses from "pick-your-own" fruit and vegetable farms, specialty food and agricultural producers, horticulturalists, large commercial manufacturers, and the list goes on.  We also welcome restaurants and retailers that source from and specifically identify products from Wisconsin companies.
 
  Can I sell my products on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  SavorWisconsin.com is a directory only; we do not have e-commerce on the SavorWisconsin.com site.  Individual businesses may have e-commerce on their business web sites, and we encourage businesses to list their web sites on the business profiles.  All sales are made directly between the business and the consumer; no sales are made on SavorWisconsin.com.
 
  Is there someone I can call for help in registering my business? Top
  Companies can contact the site administer at the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection at 608-224-5080.

General Info
  How and when was SavorWisconsin.com developed? Top
  The SavorWisconsin.com project was initiated in late 2002. The project was guided by three entities -- the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), University of Wisconsin-Extension, and the Wisconsin Apple Growers Association (WAGA). In 2003, DATCP received $3.1 million in Federal Specialty Crop Grants. A portion of that was given to the WAGA as a grant for their initiative to develop a web-based resource for locally grown products. ProNet Consulting, LLC (Appleton, WI), was selected by the WAGA as the site developer. Registration for Wisconsin's agricultural producers and businesses began December 1, 2003, and the site was launched for public use on January 4, 2004.
 
  What is the purpose of SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  In this age of the internet, SavorWisconsin.com is critical to the present and future of Wisconsin's agricultural industry. Agriculture encompasses everything from the food we eat to some of the clothes that we wear, as well as the trees and plants in our communities, and some of the fuels we put in our vehicles. The purpose of SavorWisconsin.com is to enable consumers across the state, nation and world to find their favorite Wisconsin products easily, searching from their home computer with the most advanced internet search capabilities.
 
  Why is the site named SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  With today's agricultural industry representing such a depth of products, and with so many of consumers' favorites coming from the state of Wisconsin, the name "SavorWisconsin.com" represents the high quality products grown and produced in Wisconsin.
 
  Can I buy Wisconsin products on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  Site users are not able to purchase products directly from the SavorWisconsin.com site. Site users can search for businesses that offer ecommerce (online purchasing); and businesses with websites that offer ecommerce are linked from SavorWisconsin.com where consumers can purchase the individual business' products.
 
  How do I search on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  SavorWisconsin.com has a number of different ways to search for businesses and/or products. Site users should go to the "Search Directory" link. From there, users can start searching based on a product, location, sales method, event, or business name, and can focus their search at any point. A search can be narrow or general, and allows for multiple search results.
 
  Why can't I find a certain business that meets the qualifications on SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  When complete, SavorWisconsin.com will be the most comprehensive online directory for Wisconsin's agricultural industry. SavorWisconsin.com opened for registration on December 1, 2003. Producers and businesses that qualify must complete the registration to be listed on the site. If site users don't find a business, it has not yet been registered on SavorWisconsin.com.
 
  I've noticed that some farmers markets or other agricultural events aren't listed on the SavorWisconsin.com Calendar of Events -- why? Top
  When complete, SavorWisconsin.com will be the most comprehensive online directory for Wisconsin's agricultural industry. All applicable events and municipal farmers markets must be registered individually on SavorWisconsin.com through the Event registration or Farmers Market registration. Only the event chair or manager, and the Farmers Market manager or president, can register.
 
  Why aren't individual business' events listed on the Calendar of Events? Top
  The goal of SavorWisconsin.com is to offer site users easy access to the events that pertain to a larger audience for both consumers and producers. This includes conferences, trade shows, festivals, fairs, educational opportunities, etc., and only events that are sponsored by government, agricultural associations, or non-profit organizations. Wisconsin's producers and businesses host numerous events on a regular basis and list events individually in their business profiles.
 
  Who do I contact if I have questions about SavorWisconsin.com? Top
  The site administrator is provided by the Department of Agriculture, Trade & Consumer Protection. Questions can be emailed to DATCPSavorWisconsin@wisconsin.gov.
