About Got to Be NC and Roote North Carolina

Got to Be NC is the official state identity program for agricultural products grown, raised, caught, and made in North Carolina. When you see Got to Be NC, you know that you are getting a quality agricultural product from North Carolina.

Managed by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Got to Be NC works with farmers and food businesses to identify new markets for agricultural products locally and abroad. In doing so, the program helps the state’s farm families and strengthens local economies across North Carolina.

Roote North Carolina connects North Carolina food businesses with consumers through special gift boxes featuring locally made products. The goals of Roote North Carolina are to open up opportunities and create support for N.C. food producers; connect consumers to local products that typically have limited distribution; and link sustainable activities to the global community, one delectable gift at a time.
