- First Paragraph:
- New Jersey’s agricultural and food production, processing, and distribution industries support the continued accessibility to food for the state’s 8.9 million residents. The importance of New Jersey’s food system extends well beyond the state’s borders, directly serving the needs of consumers in New York City, Philadelphia, and other major metropolitan centers along the East Coast. New Jersey’s food system also facilitates the production and trade of food items destined for other regions of the nation and world.
