State Department of Agriculture Program: Oklahoma
State Department of Agriculture of Oklahoma
Oklahoma Agriculture, Food and Forestry was created to help create and promote agriculture in the State of Oklahoma with sales opportunities in the USA and Beyond.
The Made in Oklahoma Program works with Oklahoma agribusinesses at local, regional and national levels to promote retail, institutional and gourmet sales. Activities include marketing programs targeted to increase consumer awareness about the availability and quality of Oklahoma agriculture products. Promotional methods include cooperative participation at trade shows and media advertising.
Made in Oklahoma Coalition: In March 2000, seven Oklahoma food manufacturers began meeting to discuss ways in which they could collectively work together to increase sales of their products. The group embraced the goal of pooling resources to create a substantial marketing campaign. They realized the greater the number of Made In Oklahoma products, the greater the impact, and the greater the impact, the greater the sales. As a result the Made In Oklahoma Coalition was formed.
