Made in Oklahoma Coalition recently added four new members to its group of local food companies that process, produce or distribute their product in Oklahoma. The new members include Suan's Foods, Henderson Coffee, The Bama Companies and Split-T Hickory Sauce LLC.
"We are excited to grow the coalition and add these new companies to the group," said Jerry Dyer, president of Made in Oklahoma Coalition. "These Oklahoma-based companies offer great products for Oklahomans to enjoy, adding variety to the coalition."
Suan's Foods is an Oklahoma-based company known for its Scotch Bonnet Pepper Jelly made by Suan Grant. During the four years she lived in Jamaica, she learned to cook with the Scotch bonnet pepper and created her own recipe that she started selling in 2009. The number of sales spoke to its popularity, and it can now be found at a variety of stores in the Oklahoma City metro area. For more information, visit their website by clicking here.
Henderson Coffee was founded in Muskogee, Okla. by Robert Henderson in 1944 and was family-run until 1996 when the founder's son sold the company to Mark Plaster and Mark Truitt. It supplies a wide variety of consumers with its coffee products and utilizes fundraising opportunities to support organizations through coffee sales.
