Bidii Baby Foods Reflects on Family, Fly-ins, and American Indian Foods

For almost four decades, the Intertribal Agriculture Council (IAC) has continued our commitment to empowering Native producers through the revitalization of food economies. IAC’s American Indian Foods (AIF) program protects the authenticity of Native products while directly assisting Native agribusiness owners and entrepreneurs seeking market and export expansion opportunities. Through the end of the year, AIF is sharing expertise on Export Readiness through monthly webinars.

Bidii Baby Foods, a Made/Produced by American Indians trademarked product, is an agricultural cooperative registered with the Navajo Nation that developed one of the first baby food lines to reconnect with traditional foods. Zach Ben of Bidii Baby Foods shared his thoughts on connecting tradition and family, attending the All Indian Country Fly-In and Native Food Fair, and modernization through the AIF program.

“My connection to the Intertribal Agriculture Council and the American Indian Foods [program] is that trademark and how it not only just protects yourself, your company, and your title, but also your product,” said Zach. “Being able to have organizations like this allows you to really expand and innovate in ways that we did not know was possible.”

With advocates and supporters like you, the IAC upholds its mission to pursue and promote the conservation, development, and use of our agricultural resources for the betterment of our people.
