This week the OMA hosted members at two forums:  OMA’s annual Food Manufacturers & Suppliers meeting and the quarterly meeting of the OMA Government Affairs Committee. In the food manufacturers’ event, panel discussions focused on top industry legislative and regulatory issues, including food labeling requirements and potential regulations on sugar and salt in food products.  The well attended meeting underscores the importance of Ohio’s food manufacturing industry, which provides jobs for 58,400 Ohioans. Derek Crawford, Corporate & Government Affairs, The Kraft Heinz Company, chaired the forum. The OMA Government Affairs committee heard, among a variety of legislative updates, an Ohio election presentation from Ohio House Republicans, Michael Dittoe and Kenny Street, as well as Matt Carle, Executive Director of New Day for America, John Kasich’s Super PAC. All members are welcome to join the OMA Government Affairs Committee.  Subscribe to your communities of interest here.
