It also will include a buyer’s panel, a seller’s panel, lunch (courtesy of the Ohio Beef Council and Ohio Pork Council), ample networking time, and short breakout sessions on meat processing, innovative business models, cold storage, local pricing mechanisms, and other topics.
There will be booth space for Ohio meat marketing businesses at a trade show throughout the event.
