Agencies to promote ‘Jersey Fresh’ items

New Jersey state agencies will soon be featuring and promoting “Jersey Fresh” products in their eateries.
Gov. Chris Christie recently signed bipartisan legislation that requires the agencies — whenever possible — to provide enhanced visibility and accessibility to “Jersey Fresh” and “Jersey Grown” products they serve.
Proponents say it will benefit farmers and help boost sales of food products made with Garden State produce.
“There is a great interest in buying local and supporting our farmers,” said Douglas H. Fisher, New Jersey Secretary of Agriculture. “State agency food concession patrons do not have to go far to get high quality, healthy Jersey Fresh produce and other state agricultural products.”  (Shipkowski, The Associated Press)
