Freshness and Taste from Farm to Table
Abundant natural resources and a comprehensive supply chain guarantee better foods and beverages that consumers want.
The quality of food products is a priority for health-conscious consumers seeking the freshest, healthiest options. Ohio has a wide range of food industry resources to keep up with this demand. Whether you need farms or manufacturing, cold storage facilities or grocery giants, Ohio’s food industry is among the best in the United States.
In Ohio, you can:
- Access a complete ground-to-consumer value chain. Ohio’s farmlands produce soybeans, corn, dairy, wheat, eggs, and hogs. From there, companies can connect with the state’s food manufacturers, packagers, distributors, retailers, and customers.
- Partner with and/or learn from corporate leaders in the food and agribusiness industry, including The Ohio State University Wilbur A. Gould Food Industries Center and the Center for Innovative Food Technology, as well as resources in Cincinnati, the second largest hub for flavoring research in the U.S. Organizations like the Ohio Farm Bureau are also available for support.
- Leverage assets that make doing business more affordable, such as low-cost natural gas, a deregulated power market, and open partnerships with the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and Ohio Department of Agriculture.
