We at Oregon State University are proud of the outstanding food, wine and beer that has been created in collaboration with our world-class food scientists. From artisan cheeses that win international prizes to pinot noirs recognized as among the best anywhere, we help to create delicious Oregon products that often showcase what’s possible through sustainable production and an emphasis on locally produced food and drink. On February 11, 2011 OSU highlighted food and drink from 20 companies in recognition of the impact the Oregon State University is making around the state and across the nation.
