Albany, New York (PRWEB) August 02, 2012
Michael’s Choice® announced today all of its products sold in New York state now feature the Pride of New York designation, letting consumers know the company’s gourmet products like its signature All-Natural Cranberry Raisin Chutney are sourced and processed in New York state.
The Pride of New York program, sponsored by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, promotes and supports agricultural products grown and processed in New York and provides an opportunity for the state’s residents to easily purchase products that have been verified as local.
Michael’s Choice® participation in the Pride of New York program complements a commitment to local consumers, family farmers and the state.
Michael Reinewald has been preparing his Cranberry Raisin Chutney in small kettle batches by hand in New York for more than 30 years and is proud to receive the accreditation and looks forward to continued success and support from the state of New York.
“Michael’s Choice products would not be available to purchase if not for family and many friends that encouraged me to offer them to others. My creativity, love of fine food from my own kitchen, and doing my best to experience life to the fullest are all evident in my product recipes,” shares Michael.
His New York customers are some of the most loyal, exclaiming: “My guests went crazy over the Cranberry Raisin Chutney,” “Wow Factor!” and “We battle over the jar.”
Other products by Michael’s Choice include All-Natural Razzled Tomato Relish and All Natural Apricots and Figs -- each made by hand in kettle batches.
About Michael’s Choice
Michael Reinewald founded Michael’s Choice® several years ago in response to friends and family asking for the opportunity to purchase his signature Cranberry Raisin Chutney.
Once the product was commercially established and produced, he shared a sample with a major grocer in the Northeast and the rest is history.
Michael’s Choice creates artisan hand-produced products in kettle batches and markets them to patrons at some of the finest retail and farm market locations in the Northeast.
