COLUMBUS, Ohio — After grabbing headlines last winter, the Ohio Pork Council announced their new-and-improved Bacon Vending Machine will be inside Ohio Stadium for the 2019 football season. The vending machine allows Buckeye fans to purchase ready-to-eat bacon, while supplies last, 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 Buckeyes on to victory with a classic game day favorite – bacon.”
The custom machine features a variety of ready-to-eat bacon for fans to enjoy at an affordable price, the Ohio Pork Council said in a release.
“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.
