WEGMANS AND CORNELL PARTNER ON DAIRY PROJECT

Wegmans and Cornell University announced on Wednesday, a partnership aimed at expanding and promoting the New York State dairy industry.
Wegmans will spend $360,000 to fund a three-year pilot program at Cornell to teach advanced cheese production techniques. Wegmans also has moved the production of its Wegmans-brand cheddar from Canada to three cheesemakers in New York State including one in Genesee County, in a move that both Cornell and Wegmans say will mean more farm and retail jobs for the state’s dairy industry.
