Empire State Brands is building a better food system in New York. Better for farmers, bakers, brewers and distillers. Better for the environment and better for consumers.

We’re building infrastructure, brands and processing facilities, all in Western New York. We’re employing New Yorkers, partnering with New York farmers and establishing our state as a growing region for hops, barley and grains.

By supplying the Northeast with New York agriculture, Empire State Brands will localize the food system while at the same time growing it. We’ll create an identity for quality ingredients grown throughout New York.
