(WBNG Binghamton) For the second consecutive year, New York is named the yogurt capital of the nation, according to an announcement Tuesday from Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In 2013, nearly 741 million pounds of yogurt were produced in the Empire state, that's up from 695 million pounds in 2012.

New York has, once again, topped California, which produced 591 million pounds of yogurt in 2013.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture said in 2013 New York accounted for 15 percent of yogurt production in the United States.
