ALBANY, N.Y. -- Governor Cuomo is hosting farmers and manufacturers at a yogurt summit in Albany today.
The governor's office is meeting with yogurt producers to highlight an expanding upstate industry that he says is a sign New York State is back in business.
The goal is finding ways for the state to help increase New York's share of the growing field. The state will look at regulations and laws that could get in the way of farmers providing more milk and manufacturers making yogurt.
Two of the country's biggest Greek yogurt manufacturers operate in Upstate New York. Chobani is based in New Berlin and Fage has a plant in Johnstown. With some much activity around the industry, it's becoming a challenge for the state's dairy industry to meet the needs of yogurt companies.
Cuomo announced the summit earlier this month at a Greek-style yogurt plant being built in Batavia.
