What is GO TEXAN?
The GO TEXAN program is a Texas Department of Agriculture initiative dedicated to identifying and supporting Texas-based businesses and connecting them with customers across the Lone Star State and around the world. The GO TEXAN program is dedicated to showcasing the diversity and quality of Texas-based businesses. Whether we are developing new sales and business opportunities for GO TEXAN Partners or encouraging consumers to look for the iconic GO TEXAN mark when making buying decisions, we will always strive to find new and meaningful ways to promote products and services that are Texas made and Texas proud.

Do I qualify to use the GO TEXAN Mark? How can I obtain it?
To use the GO TEXAN Product mark, your entity needs to be a taxable entity in the state of Texas and must be registered with the Texas Comptroller. If you register for the product mark, you must manufacture, or value add to your product in the state of Texas. We require the physical address of the product manufacturing facility.

The GO TEXAN mark files are sent to every new partner upon application approval. If you need the mark files, please email GOTEXAN@TexasAgriculture.gov
