Winner’s Meats, which is located in both Osgood and Greenville, participated at the Ohio Association of Meat Processors Convention in Columbus Ohio this past weekend. Meat processors statewide entered their best homemade products into a competition between other Ohio meat processors. Judges used various criteria such as appearance, aroma, texture, and of course, taste to base their decisions on the anonymous entries. This year’s judges were representatives from the Food Science Division from Ohio State, and other prominent members of organizations that deal in the food industry. There also where many vendors sharing their newest spices, equipment, packaging, and other supplies utilized in the meat processing industry.
Winner’s Meats proudly came home with FOUR awards this year. Winner’s received two First place awards for their homemade Beef Smokey Sticks and Home Cured Slab Bacon. A Reserve Champion award for their Blue Ribbon Bologna. And a Blue Ribbon or Grand Champion award for their Winner’s Wieners!
Founded in 1928, Robert Winner began butchering cattle and hogs in a barn and processing it for friends and family. Today, the business has expanded immensely under the guidance of three generations of Winner’s.
The third generation is very proud and welcoming of the new shareholders taking on more roles and responsibilities. “Only about 3% of family businesses operate into the 4th generation or beyond. (Family Business Institute, 2009)”
