Caesars Entertainment said Tuesday it has signed agreements with 348 local food and beverage vendors to use their products at the casino resort it hopes to build in Woodbury, if granted a state license.
It offered the following sampling of businesses involved in its “Gateway to New York” program: ACE Farm, the longtime egg producer in Woodbury and Monroe; Nat Kagan Meat & Poultry, a Sullivan County wholesaler; Hudson Valley Cattle Company; Byrne Dairy of Montgomery; and Palaia Vineyard of Highland Mills.
Here’s the statement from Jan Jones Blackhurst, executive vice president for communications and government relations for Caesars:
“We are excited to build on the state’s successful homegrown food and beverage initiatives by featuring farm-to-table products at our resort’s restaurants and venues. Through partnerships with the state’s farms, wineries, cideries, breweries, distilleries, and other businesses producing dairy products, food, and spirits here in New York, Caesars is committed to showcasing local products for years to come. These agreements are a win-win for the entire state.”
