We Are Planting the Seeds of Success
The Buckeye State takes food and agribusiness seriously. Across Ohio, there are more than 13 million acres of farmland and over 10 million acres used to grow principle crops of corn, soybeans, wheat and hay. But the focus is much broader than growing and raising healthy food. The Dayton Region hosts many businesses along its vast supply chain that brings fresh food to restaurants, grocery stores and residential tables each day.
Reaping the Benefits
It takes many helping hands to bring good food to families across the nation. Here in Ohio, more than 100,000 employees work in the food and agribusiness sector. From the farmlands and research and development, to retailers, foodservice and customers, you will find regional, national and global brands that call Ohio “home.” Companies such as ConAgra Brands with their successful food lines and Golden Fresh Farms’ high-tech greenhouse facilities have chosen the Dayton Region to put down roots for success.
