For residents of Ohio only. Co-sponsored by CIFT and the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation, the Ohio Signature Food Contest isn't just for dreamers, it's for doers. It's for those who want to take their food product idea and make it store shelf or restaurant ready.
Don't have a business model? No problem. Products do not need to be fully designed or ready for market, rather an ability to communicate a specific vision. The technical assistance aspect of the award will provide guidance toward a finished product.
