Greater Owensboro Economic Development Celebrating Local Manufacturers with Cool Info About Local Companies
When I was a little kid, I thought that if it was made in Owensboro, it stayed in Owensboro. I REALLY believed in supporting local, didn't I?
LOCAL BUT GLOBAL
For example, I was watching a movie or a TV show--can't remember what it was--and a character had a pouch of Red Man chewing tobacco and I flipped out. I knew that it was made here; I just didn't know it was a national brand.
I love discovering stuff like that about our community or region on a national level. It's like when I was watching that Stephen King adaptation 11.22.63 on Hulu a few years back and saw Owensboro on a map. It was about 10 to 12 miles north of a fictional town in the story.
RAGU ACROSS THE LAND
Well, in case you didn't know, every single jar of Ragu sauce in this country is manufactured at Mizkan. I did not know that. And I have Greater Owensboro Economic Development to thank for that information.
October 1st was National Manufacturing Day and GOED used that as a jumping-off point to celebrate local manufacturers all month long. And I cannot wait to see future postings and learn more about what's made here in Owensboro.
And by the way, ANYTIME I'm near Mizkan, I start craving spaghetti. It has a great hold over me.
