Food industry expo
Ohio is home to some of the largest food manufacturers in the country – which includes more than 1,000 companies across the state.
The state’s food and beverage manufacturing industry employs more than 60,000 people, and ships more than $24 billion worth of products every year. Such impressive numbers regularly make Ohio one of the nation’s leaders in food/beverage processing and agribusiness.
On Friday, March 1 from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., the Center for Innovative Food Technology (CIFT), the Food Innovation Center at The Ohio State University, and the Ohio Manufacturing Extension Partnership will partner to host representatives from food-related businesses at the Ohio Food Industry Expo.
The event will be held at the NorthPointe Hotel and Conference Center, located at 100 Green Meadows Drive South, Lewis Center, Ohio, (just north of Columbus).
Food manufacturers, service providers, economic development leaders, industry-related organizations, political representatives, agricultural producers and more will learn from experts on creating a quality supply chain, sensory science, Food Safety Modernization Act, the politics of obesity and much more.
The registration fee is $95 per person for non-CIFT members, and $50 for CIFT members. Visit ciftinnovation.org to register and pay online.
