Products from Delta to Get Their Own Label

HELENA-WEST HELENA, AR - A new label touting products from east Arkansas borrows a page from France's book.  In France, the champagne label is reserved legally for wine grown from grapes in the Champagne region and bottled there.  In Arkansas, the National Trust for Historic Preservation unveiled a new program to boost the economy of the Delta region using branding under the name Arkansas DeltaMade.

The Arkansas DeltaMade label and promotional program launches with 25 locally made arts, crafts, food products and other items to be sold in 16 retail stores in the Delta region.

Products carrying the Arkansas DeltaMade brand include honey, jewelry, fabric items, steak and seafood seasoning, candles and barbeque sauce.
