The Ohio Produce Growers & Marketers Association is an organization of Ohio produce growers and marketers who have consumer and processor satisfaction, environmentally friendly practices, business success, and the provision of fulfilling career opportunities for family and employees as their primary goals. These goals are accomplished though premier innovative educational programs, a legislative presence, and cooperation among members.
In January 2007 the memberships of the Ohio Fruit Growers Society, Ohio Vegetable and Potato Growers Association, and Direct Agricultural Marketers Association merged to form Ohio Produce Growers & Marketers Association.
The new organization was formed to streamline the educational and promotional activities of the state's produce grower's and marketers. OPGMA has been designed to aid in providing educational opportunities to business owners, employees, and families associated with the production and marketing of the state's fresh produce industry. Promoting the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables will also be an important goal.
