MADISON, Wis. (WSAW) - With the holiday season just around the corner, many consumers are in search of gifts and ingredients to make their holidays special.

The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture Trade and Consumer Protection encourages people to keep an eye out for the Something Special from Wisconsin™ logo.

The red and yellow SSfW logo is a quick, reliable way to identify genuine Wisconsin products. Products displaying the logo have at least half of the item’s ingredients, production, or processing attributed to Wisconsin. With nearly 450 companies participating in the SSfW program, the logo can be found on everything from meats and cheeses to sweet syrups, candies, soaps, candles, lotions, art, beverages, and more.

“Buying local from the Something Special from Wisconsin program is a great way to support local producers, processors, small businesses, and our state’s economy,” said Taylor Schaefer, the 75th  Alice in Dairyland. “With these locally produced items, it’s easy to make magical moments this holiday season.”
