About the Partners and Program

The BMI shows the many ways industry supports, impacts, and depends on community—the way it unites us.

It’s undeniable that there is industry inside each of us. We all have a unique mix of resources, energy, production, and momentum. And when we unite? That’s when something special happens. That’s when innovation emerges, lives improve, and industries thrive.

The BMI is proud to partner with these individuals and organizations that have deep connections to our region’s oyster industry. Bringing their stories together—how oysters are produced, consumed, and recycled—shows how a community can sustain an industry and meet the culinary demand of a new generation of oyster lovers.
