BioscienceThe science of living things — human, animal and plant — has long been a field in which Kansas has strengths. 

The state has a strong foundation in some areas of the biosciences and is well situated to take advantage of emerging opportunities in others.

Food Processing

Food ProcessingSince statehood, Kansas has been well-known for a robust agriculture and food industry. 

Kansas is known as the breadbasket of the United States … a title earned due to Kansas’ consistent ranking as the number one producer of wheat in the United States.


DistributionTransportation is critical for business success, and Kansas offers excellent highway, rail and air options for your business. 

The state's central location and focus on building and maintaining an outstanding infrastructure means it's easier and cheaper to ship to and from Kansas.
