SOUTH EDMESTON – In continuing his “Brindisi at Your Business” initiative, Congressman Anthony Brindisi toured Chobani’s South Edmeston plant on Monday to better acquaint himself with the company and its needs.
Brindisi said he launched the “Brindisi at Your Business” program as a way to further understand the needs of businesses in New York’s 22nd Congressional District and the different things those businesses are working towards.
Following the tour, Brindisi said, “As a member of the Agricultural Committee in the house, Chobani is one of our most important employers and I want to make sure that I’m learning firsthand about their needs and how I can do whatever I can down in Washington to help this company and their great employees.”
During his tour, Brindisi said he learned all about the yogurt making process and talked with Chobani employees about some of the issues facing dairy farmers in New York State.
“That’s something that I heard a lot about during the campaign, some of the problems that our dairy farmers are facing,” said Brindisi. “And they have similar concerns here [at Chobani] and want to be supportive of New York’s dairy industry.”
