About ANYSFP

Association History

Founded in 1885 by a progressive group of canners, the Associated New York State Food Processors is the oldest statewide food processing trade association in the United States.

As the market, needs, and goals of the industry have changed over the years, the association’s name changed from the New York Canned Goods Packers Association to the New York Canners (1912), the Association of New York Canners (1922), and until 1968 was called the New York State Canners and Freezers.

The membership was broadened to include active membership from the New York Association of Wine Producers in 1981 and the New York State Association of Refrigerated Warehouses in 1984.

Association Today

The purpose of the Associated New York State Food Processors today is to create an environment for the food manufacturing sector to be able to network with similar companies and suppliers sharing ideas and solutions for their everyday needs.  The Association brings companies and individuals together that have experience and resources that enable food processors to improve their operation, explore new technologies, discuss federal and state regulatory issues and group to together with one voice to state legislators to improve the business environment for all food processors working in the state of New York.
