ALBANY, N.Y. -
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo is urging the USDA to choose New York for their Greek yogurt pilot program.
A press release says, New York State Agriculture & Markets Commissioner Darrel Aubertine to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack outlined the state's interest in being chosen for the pilot program, as well as encouraged USDA to amend the protein crediting standards to better reflect the nutritional value of Greek yogurt.
"As the nation's leader in Greek yogurt production, New York is the natural fit to be selected to implement this pilot program," Governor Cuomo said. "Our state government is partnering with the private sector to bring down barriers to business growth, and the results are showing in New York's tremendous yogurt boom. New York State is eager to demonstrate that serving delicious Greek Yogurt in our cafeterias will both improve the health of our children while helping our schools save money - a real win-win."
The press release says New York's yogurt plants have more than doubled in production and grew by 850 million pounds.
The USDA pilot programs would be a part of the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. This program provides meals in both public and private non-for-profit schools.
