Growing Successful Agribusinesses
Whether it’s dairy production and processing, food packaging, or food processing, Buffalo Niagara is a major part of New York’s agriculture industry. In fact, we’re the leading producer of dairy products in the state, which says a lot considering New York is America’s 3rd largest dairy producing state. Not only are we conveniently located for access to the entire East Coast, our proximity to Canada helps food and dairy processors get their products to their customers. Plus, employers note their proximity to a high concentration of food businesses and farms as a major advantage.
