Pride of Dakota Unveils New Website

BISMARCK – Visitors to the Pride of Dakota website will find it has a new look and is easier to use than ever.

“When Pride of Dakota recently passed the 500 member mark, we thought it would be a good time to upgrade the website,” said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring, who oversees the marketing program. “I believe both member companies and their customers will like its new features and find it a useful and convenient way to do their shopping.”

The website's address remains www.prideofdakota.com. It can also be accessed by clicking on the Pride of Dakota logo on the NDDA website, www.nd.gov/ndda.

The new website includes links to both “featured products” and “featured members,” which are changed monthly.

Users can find products and companies through links on the left side of the homepage. Categories include artisans and gifts, food and beverage, manufacturers, personal care products, publishers, services and associate members.

The website also has a members section, a list of retailers carrying Pride of Dakota products, a calendar of events and a photo gallery, as well as a link to news stories about Pride of Dakota.

Administered by NDDA Marketing Services, the Pride of Dakota program provides member companies with cooperative marketing and promotional events, such as in-store demonstrations, Pride of Dakota Day and the Holiday Showcases and Harvest Showcase. The program also provides educational opportunities and representation at regional, national and international marketing expositions. More than 500 North Dakota companies are Pride of Dakota members.
