MIO Coalition holds legislative reception

The Made in Oklahoma (MIO) Coalition kicked off their April Marketing Campaign with a legislative reception at the Philips Pavilion in Oklahoma City with Gov. Mary Fallin as special guest.

More than 200 state legislators, food service administrators, retail industry personnel and coalition members were in attendance. The event showcased the more than 40 Oklahoma-based food manufacturers and the positive effect these companies have on the state’s economy.

In 2012, the MIO Coalition membership employed more than 25,000 Oklahomans and generated more than $3.2 billion in sales, 85 percent of which were sales exported to other states and countries.
