The Almond Board of California (ABC), the almond industry’s Federal Marketing Order (FMO), conducts research on the health and nutritional benefits of almonds and provides technical expertise on growing practices and managing resources to best support the California almond industry. ABC is prohibited by USDA to advocate, lobby or influence state and federal policies or legislation.
To fully utilize the expertise and data that the almond industry has developed through ABC, the Almond Alliance entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with ABC. Working together and leveraging organizational expertise has enabled the Almond Alliance to maximize investments made by the almond industry in the production and marketing of California almonds. The Almond Alliance provides the California almond industry a voice in policy, regulatory and legislative discussions that will shape the right to farm and process almonds today and for years to come.
The Almond Alliance and ABC are committed to collaboration and creating a synergy between the two organizations for long term industry success.
