The almond industry announced a series of goals last week that it hopes to achieve by 2025. The goals, which focus on using less water and pesticides; reducing waste and generating less harvest dust, will be accomplished by what the Almond Board of California’s Holly King describes as “three-legged stool” of sustainability. King said the almond industry hopes to achieve these goals by employing “production practices that are ecologically sound, economically viable and socially equitable.”
Almond Industry Goals Ensure Sustainability

California almonds make life better by what we grow and how we grow. The Almond Board of California promotes natural, wholesome and quality almonds through leadership in strategic market development, innovative research, and accelerated adoption of industry best practices on behalf of the more than 6,800 almond farmers and processors in California, most of whom are multi-generational family operations. Established in 1950 and based in Modesto, California, the Almond Board of California is a non-profit organization that administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture.
