This bill allows the Secretary of Agriculture to notify interested individuals and business entities of the opportunity to contribute funds to advertise and promote the sale of New Jersey farm products and the "Jersey Fresh" program. "Jersey Fresh" is an advertising, promotional, and quality grading program launched by the Department of Agriculture in 1984. Through the many years of the program, consumers' awareness has increased, and it has become the benchmark for other states to initiate their own state-grown agricultural marketing programs. The Department of Agriculture continually supports "Jersey Fresh" by working with restaurants, schools, colleges, non-profits, retail businesses, hotels, hospitals, and local communities.
