COLUMBUS, Ohio — After grabbing international media headlines last winter, the Ohio Pork Council is pleased to launch their new-and-improved Bacon Vending Machine at Ohio Stadium just in time for football season. The Bacon Vending Machine will be available for BuckeyeTM fans to purchase ready-to-eat bacon, while supplies last, at Ohio Stadium all season long.
“The Ohio Pork Council is proud to support Ohio State Athletics and could not think of a more fitting location to launch our new Bacon Vending Machine than Ohio Stadium,” said District 1 Director Nathan Schroeder, a pig farmer from Putnam County, Ohio. “Thanks to the Bacon Vending Machine, fans can cheer the BuckeyesTM on to victory with a classic game day favorite – bacon.”
Developed in collaboration with Innovative Vending Solutions, the custom machine features a variety of ready-to-eat bacon for fans to enjoy at an affordable price. The modern machine also features a touch screen interface with educational videos and facts about Ohio’s pig farming community on display – enabling consumers to learn more about responsibly raised pork.
“In partnership with the We Care SM initiative, the Bacon Vending Machine serves as a unique conversation piece for Ohio’s pig farmers to educate consumers about their commitment to responsible animal care and providing quality pork products,” said Schroeder.
The Ohio Pork Council invites BuckeyeTM fans to visit the Bacon Vending Machine, located near section 37A in the south stands, at tomorrow’s game against Florida Atlantic and each home game for the remainder of the season.
