BUFFALO, N.Y. — New York’s Upstate Niagara dairy cooperative will supply its Greek yogurt to public schools across three states under a federal school lunch pilot program.

Sen. Charles Schumer says that a U.S. Department of Agriculture contract calls for the Buffalo-based co-op to provide 142,700 pounds of Greek yogurt to schools in New York, Arizona and Tennessee through December.

Upstate Niagara is a farmer-owned co-op consisting of 360 family-owned dairy farms in western New York.

New York’s dairy industry is the third largest in the nation and has been undergoing a yogurt boom in recent years with the opening of several new plants. The New York Farm Bureau says the state produced an estimated 740 million pounds of yogurt in 2013, more than triple the 2007 output.
