VIDEO – Ag Secretary Vilsack Visits Ohio State

Friday, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack met with leaders from The Ohio State University and from the local business community whose research is producing biobased products and creating new job opportunities. In January, the USDA Certified Biobased Product label was launched so customers know when they are buying a biobased product, thereby creating economic opportunity for businesses producing these products. The label identifies biobased products composed wholly or significantly of agricultural ingredients-renewable plant, animal, marine or forestry materials. Biobased products help add value to commodities, create jobs in rural communities, and increase U.S. energy independence by reducing the use of petroleum in manufactured products.
