INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Grocery stores and restaurants could start stocking more meat, fruits and vegetables grown in Indiana if a new marketing push takes seed.

Gov. Mike Pence on Wednesday signed into law a bill that creates the Indiana Grown Initiative.

The initiative is intended to promote Indiana agriculture in the state. The law requires a panel to brainstorm ways to market locally grown agricultural products, such as meats and vegetables, and encourage local businesses to sell more products from within the state.

The panel will include representatives from restaurants, grocery stores and farmers markets.

The panel also will recommend further legislation that promotes selling Indiana agriculture in the state each year.
