Ohio Pork Council Recognized for Bacon Vending Machine

The vending machine was launched at OSU last December

For the second year in a row, the Ohio Pork Council received top honors at the American Association of Political Consultants Pollie Award Conference, held on April 2-4 in Napa Valley, Calif. The Ohio Pork Council was also recognized at the Ohio Poultry Association’s Annual Industry Celebration Banquet, held April 12 in Columbus, Ohio.

OPC’s Bacon Vending Machine took top honors in the Best New and Unusual Tactic category of the Pollie Awards — the most prized and sought-after awards in the political communications and public affairs industries. The Bacon Vending Machine was designed to create a unique way to promote pork products, while emphasizing farmers’ mission to give back to the community.

Additionally, the Bacon Vending Machine served as a fundraiser for The Ohio State University’s meat science program. The vending machine was launched on Ohio State’s campus last December, and received media attention from local, national and international news outlets.
