New York State Grown & Certified is the first statewide, multi-faceted food certification program designed to strengthen consumer confidence in New York products, address food product labeling, and assist New York farmers so they can take advantage of the growing market demand for foods locally grown and produced to a higher standard.
In order to become certified, maple producers must complete both food safety and environmental management training. For more information, visit the New York State Grown & Certified website.
The following PDF documents contain more detailed information concerning the food safety portion of the maple certification training, as well as the licensing agreement and style guidelines. These documents are subject to revision. Updated documents will be posted here as they become available.
