There will be a demonstration of Ohio’s MarketMaker held at the Ohio Department of Agriculture on Wednesday January 27th. The demo will be presented by Julie Fox from The Ohio State University Extension.
Ohio MarketMaker is a free service that was launched in 2008 as a collaborative effort to support Ohio’s food industry, improve access to local food and keep more food dollars in the regional economy. As part of a growing national network, Ohio MarketMaker is an easy-to-use web-based resource already used by thousands of Ohio food producers, buyers, and others in the food supply chain.
This electronic infrastructure combines easy-to-use information that food businesses need, including demographic, food consumption and business profile data that can be mapped to show concentrated markets and strategic business partners.
See for yourself how Ohio businesses can use Ohio MarketMaker to make connections that improve supply and demand of Ohio foods. We will do a presentation with a program update. If you’d like, bring your laptop, log into Ohio MarketMaker and we’ll walk through a demo of the latest technology.
