Does my company qualify to become an Ohio Proud partner?
Our members’ products are at least 50% raised, grown, or processed in the state of Ohio.
I don’t make a product. Can I still use the Ohio Proud logo?
Maybe! Ohio Proud has an affiliate membership for any distributor, retailer, restaurant, or association that does
not produce a product, but promotes and supports Ohio Proud products throughout the year. To request affiliate status contact us at
614-728-6206 or OhioProud@agri.ohio.gov.
How often do I need to renew my membership?
Ohio Proud is an annual membership program. Your company’s license agreement will be valid through the end of each year.
You will have the opportunity to renew the license agreement each year for a period of twelve months from January 1 through December
31. All applications received and approved after October first of any calendar year are valid until December 31st of the following
calendar year with no additional application fee.
I overpaid last year and the portal won’t allow me to pay less than $50. What should I do?
You can call into the Ohio Proud office at 614-728-6206 and we will process your credit card payment over the phone
for an amount that does not equal $50.00.
