The launch of the Bio Preferred Program was facilitated by two provisions in the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act (FSRIA) of 2002 which stated:

A mandate to the U.S. Department of Agriculture to develop and implement a comprehensive program for designating bio-based products and a directive to all federal agencies to increase their purchase and use of preferred products.

FSRIA defines 'bio-based products' as products determined by the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to be commercial or industrial goods (other than food or feed) composed in whole or in significant part of biological products, forestry materials, or renewable domestic agricultural materials, including plant, animal, or marine materials. Bio-based products are made from renewable plant and animal sources, and are generally safer for the environment than their petroleum-based counterparts. Bio-based products are usually biodegradable or recyclable.

Federal agencies are required by FSRIA to purchase bio-based products over their petroleum-based counterparts, as long as the bio-based materials are reasonably available, reasonably priced, and comparable in performance. As the single largest consumer in the United States, purchasing roughly $400 billion annually in goods and service, the federal government's preferred use of bio-based resources will help achieve four significant goals:


Create new jobs for rural communities


Provide new markets for farm commodities


Increase national security by lessening our dependence on foreign oil


Improve the environment through the use of non-toxic, renewable resources
