Fruit Sales

Sale Begins: October 10, 2019

For many years, the FFA Fruit Sale program has been a major fundraising activity for many Ohio FFA chapters. Over the years, this program has grown to include many companion products. This fundraiser also helps support statewide programs and events. Thanks to a variety of dedicated vendors a small rebate is given per case or unit to the Ohio FFA Foundation. This helps the Ohio FFA to provide opportunities like 212-360, Ohio FFA Convention, Career Development Events, OLLC and more to students. Without statewide fundraising, Ohio FFA members would have limited opportunities for success. We invite you to become a part of the Fruit and Companion Products Sale by working with one of our many approved vendors.  Teachers please note:

  • Please use only approved vendors!  These suppliers have agreed to give a rebate to the Ohio FFA Foundation to fund student activities and awards. Suppliers not on this list have no obligation to support the Ohio FFA Foundation, which in turn, supports you and your students.
  • Teachers should contact vendors directly for exact pricing.
  • There will be no statewide minimum pricing for the fruit sale. Teachers are strongly encouraged to work with chapters in their area to establish local pricing standards.
  • All orders must be made directly with your supplier.
  • Work with your supplier on any specific procedures and problem.
  • Please pay your invoice on time.
  • If you know of a supplier that is not on our list of approved vendors, please let us know and we will invite them to become a part of the program.

The Ohio FFA Foundation is excited to introduce several NEW vendors to this year’s sale. Please be sure to check out how you can include them in your sale. Welcome to Design House Creatives (https://stockshowgear.com), Jose Madrid Salsa (http://josemadridsalsa.mybigcommerce.com), Neighbors Cookies (www.ultimatefundraisingusa.com) and Cross Creek Fundraising (contact David direct to learn more about their products). We look forward to a great year!
