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.
