An important notice sent over, and should be read by those who this pertains to....

NYS Grown & Certified program for Seafood grown or landed (wild-caught)
in New York State


New York State is launching the New York State Grown & Certified Seafood Application for Producers and Processors.

This voluntary program is a cooperative effort among producers, processors , wholesalers, retailers , restaurants and the New York State Department of Agriculture & Markets to meet high-quality food and agricultural products. Upon acceptance to the New York State Grown & Certified program, participants will be able to display a new high-impact label that will clearly stand out, telling the consumer their food handling practices are audited and they operate their farms in an environmentally responsible manner.

There is no fee for joining the program. Please review the attached application for program details.
I appreciate your help in disseminated the application to your list-serv.


Further...

We need to get as many local commercial fishermen and baymen as possible to sign on for the program this month.

The NYS Seafood Certification program will help consumers identify what seafood is actually guaranteed as being landed in New York State and what has been imported from elsewhere.

There will be a marketing push following the sign on phase encouraging New York consumers to support New York fishermen and baymen by only purchasing seafood that bear this certification seal.

Earlier versions of the certification program have been very successful with helping other NY producers (farmers, brewers, dairy producers, maple syrup producers, apiaries, vintners, etc, etc) and now we need all the help we can get to bring New York’s seafood producers on board.

Maybe they should give out "Certified Regulated Out Of Business By NY State" stickers instead. I'm sure the demand is much greater.

Boy that is a great idea....

In fact, as soon as the super-squirrel-secret LaPointe NYS FFL report is released, someone should be handing these out at the meeting.
