22 Nov: Van Drew Bill To Promote ‘Jersey Fresh’ Products Receives Final Approval In Senate

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Jeff Van Drew to promote locally-grown fruits and vegetables by expanding the ‘Jersey Fresh’ program to baked goods and other food products was today approved by the Senate. It now heads to the desk of Governor Christie.

The bill (S-1179) would designate baked goods and other products made with ‘Jersey Fresh’ ingredients ‘Made With Jersey Fresh.’

“Jersey Fresh is a brand consumers have grown to know and love,” said Senator Van Drew (D-Cape May/Atlantic/Cumberland). “With this new designation, shoppers will be able to immediately spot baked goods and other foods that are made with the same high-quality, great tasting produce they trust.”
