Farm to City Expo: Local Seafood Wave of the Future

The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets and the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York are co-sponsoring Farm to City Expo 2019.  As part of the annual Farm to City Expo 2018, the Local Seafood Wave of the Future panel discussion focused on locally-produced seafood and provided an opportunity to connect New York State’s wild caught and aquaculture producers with restaurant and foodservice buyers. The Department also spotlighted the growing oyster industry and highlighted its participation in the New York State Grown & Certified marketing program, which promotes growers who adhere to higher food safety and environmental standards.
