NY takes top spot in yogurt business

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

New York is number one in the yogurt business.

New statistics show New York has turned out 692 million pounds of yogurt last year, taking the top spot. California is number two.

Yogurt plants have nearly tripled in production in just the last five years in New York. Governor Andrew Cuomo lifted some environmental protection regulations regarding cattle waste, allowing dairy farmers to produce more milk per year.

Currently the state is the fourth largest milk producer in the county, turning out more than 13 billion pounds of milk in 2012.
