Oct. 27, 2017 – -As Abraham Lincoln once said, “the best way to predict your future is to create it”. The Almond Alliance works tirelessly to ensure that the California almond industry has a voice when policy discussions are taking place that will impact our industry’s ability and right to farm.
As the California almond industry has grown and become the largest crop in California with an estimated 1,240,000 acres and a 25% increase in production expected in the next 3-5 years increased visibility and scrutiny will continue. The almond industry will continue to face unprecedented challenges for growers, huller/shellers, handlers, processors and allied industry partners. Despite its numerous contributions to the state’s economy, the industry is faced with increasing concerns about both its ability and right to farm. To address these challenges and to identify proactive opportunities for the almond industry, the association is implementing a comprehensive government relations program.
The Almond Alliance advocates for the California almond community on a wide range of issues on legislative and regulatory fronts. To learn more about these efforts, download a copy of the 2017 Advocacy Report by clicking here.
