LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Michigan’s director of agriculture and rural development is leading a trade mission to China.

This week’s mission is the second led by Jamie Clover Adams in search of new markets for the state’s farm products.

Joining her are representatives of a number of Michigan fruit producing companies and organizations. Among them are Shoreline Fruit Growers, Inc., Graceland Fruit, the Cherry Marketing Institute and Cherry Central.

Some of the companies also will visit South Korea under guidance of the state agriculture department’s partner, Food Export Midwest. They’ll meet with buyers in Seoul.

The Michigan department has an International Marketing Program, which helps food producers and processors develop trade opportunities.
