Beef Council Rewards Consumers for Experiencing Beef across Ohio

Kelly Keirn | April 24, 2023

The Ohio Beef Council (OBC) wants to help beef lovers experience the best steaks, burgers, and featured beef dishes Ohio’s local restaurants have to offer with the Eat Beef Ohio Passport launch. The program officially begins May 1, 2023, and runs through the end of September.

The passport, funded by Ohio’s beef farm families through the Beef Checkoff program, urges consumers throughout the state to visit participating restaurants where they can order their favorite beef menu item to earn points for prizes. A check-in at each location also gives pass holders a chance to be entered to win a Pit Boss 700FB Wood Pellet Grill.

“Ohio’s cattle farmers take great pride in the beef they raise. We think the change of seasons is a great time to kick off this statewide celebration of beef,” said Ohio Beef Council Chairman Erin Stickel “We look forward to sharing great beef-eating experiences with all of Ohio.”

The Eat Beef Ohio Passport is free, and consumers can click here to sign up for their Eat Beef Ohio Passport by providing their name, email address, and mobile phone number. A link will be sent to their phone, which opens the passport and directs the user to save the button icon to their home screen, where they can access it at any time. The ease of the passport ensures that there is never anything to download and no bulky apps on the user’s phone, while simply tracking your great beef-eating experiences.

Once you are ready to redeem your pass, simply open the button icon and earn a stamp at a participating restaurant. To find a full listing of participating restaurants click here.
