Every day until
Christmas, the department will randomly select one person from
its Facebook and Twitter fans to win featured Illinois food
products. Prizes range from Illinois wines and cheese to an
Illinois State Fair pork package, homemade cookies, gourmet
popcorn and handmade chocolates.
The department's Bureau of Marketing and Promotion is
sponsoring the contest to increase awareness of the wide variety
of food products manufactured in Illinois and the economic
importance of the state's food industry.
