BIO 2020 Fact Sheet - Georgia
Georgia’s bioscience industry is a strategic and growing technology component of the overall U.S. economy. American bioscience innovation in health, energy, and agriculture supports state & local communities in a variety of ways ranging from job creation, construction, tax revenues, and other economic impact values. Driven by small-company innovators, this valued industry is also mobilizing in an unprecedented manner to address the global COVID-19 pandemic, and other life-saving and life-enhancing products and services for the U.S. and elsewhere. America’s bioscience industry has never been more important, both for our health and our economic recovery.
U.S. Food and Agriculture Industries
Economic Impact Study, 2021
America’s food and agriculture sectors feed the economy and fortify the nation. Together, they are responsible for roughly one-fifth of the country’s economic activity, directly supporting nearly 20 million jobs; that equals more than 13% of US employment.
It begins in the rich soil of America’s farms and ranches – more than 2 million of them – spread across the heartland and stretching to the coasts, covering two out of every five American acres.
Meanwhile, millions of food scientists, grocers and truck-drivers work in more than 200,000 food manufacturing, processing, and storage facilities, to keep food fresh and deliver it on time.
The journey may conclude at one of the nation’s many restaurant locations or make its way from retail grocers to American homes where families are grateful for the nation’s bounty.
