A Full Supply Chain from Farm-to-Table
14 million acres devoted to agriculture, abundant fresh water and a farm-to-table supply chain guarantee better foods and beverages consumers want.
The quality of food is a priority as health-conscious consumers seek the freshest foods. Ohio has the concentration of food industry resources to keep up with this demand. Whether a farm or manufacturer, cold storage facility or grocery giant, Ohio’s food industry is among the best in the U.S.
In Ohio, you can:
- Access a complete end-to-end 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.
Ohio’s food and agribusiness industry boasts hundreds of companies that have a role in producing foods and drinks enjoyed by consumers around the world. Kroger, Bob Evans, Smucker’s and Wendy’s are among the food leaders all headquartered in Ohio. And Daisy, Dannon, Nestlé and Campbell’s each have a large presence here. They choose Ohio because it offers everything that food companies need to thrive.
