WASHINGTON - This evening, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and the Utah delegation celebrated Pioneer Day and Utah’s continued pioneering and industrious spirit at the 2nd Annual Taste of Utah in Washington, D.C. This year’s event hosted over 500 attendees who learned about, enjoyed product from, and interacted with business owners from over 20+ Utah businesses representing food, manufacturing, and more.

“What started as a small event hosted out of my Washington D.C. office with jello and homemade root beer floats has grown into a widely attended event highlighting some great Utah companies and products,” Sen. Lee said. “Utah is an awesome state; it’s a great place to raise a family, have kids, and start a business, and Utahns are an industrious, hardworking, and caring people. I’m happy to host this event that highlights Utah’s heritage and hard work, and I look forward to working with the Utah Food Industry Association to continue growing this event in years to come.”

Taste of Utah gives Utah businesses owners the opportunity to showcase their product and meet directly with policymakers and the Washington, D.C. community, and is sponsored by the Utah Food Industry Association and other Utah companies.
