Made in Oklahoma Coalition 

Originally formed in 2000, the Made in Oklahoma (MIO) Coalition is a consortium of food manufacturers operating in Oklahoma. The group's primary focus is the marketing and sales of local products, and the membership includes a number of longtime Oklahoma companies, from manufacturers to distributors. Throughout the year, a number of MIO promotions take place, including an annual recipe contest and monthly highlighted recipes, both focused on utilizing MIO products.

Companies/Products

Often, Oklahomans are surprised to learn that many of the products they have purchased for years are actually produced locally. Others choose to buy MIO brands in order to support local companies and their employees. A larger list of MIO products is available below, but some of the more popular names include dairy products from Hiland Dairy Company, Billy Goat Ice Cream, and Braum's Ice Cream Shop & Burger Restaurant and meats such as Bar-S hot dogs and O'Steen Meat Specialties. Griffin Foods Company, which is the maker of a number of sauces and condiments, is an Oklahoma company, as is Shawnee Milling Company, which produces popular baking mixes.

MIO products are available in many Oklahoma City area grocery stores, including:

Restaurants

Not only can you find MIO products for your personal use in area grocery stores, but a number of popular Oklahoma City area restaurants make use of these products in their menu offerings.
