with the New York State Restaurant Association, the Governor reached
out to restaurants, restaurant groups and chefs throughout the state to
support the Pride of New York Pledge and increase their use of New York
State products by 10 percent or more. The Pride of New York Pledge is an
important new component of the Governor’s Taste NY program and is
designed to encourage the state’s culinary industry to take advantage of
the abundant food and beverage products the state has to offer.
