Almond Industry Leads Way in Food Safety
Almond Board |

The USDA-empowered Almond Board of California established the rule in 2007 for nuts sold domestically, and many believe the safeguard has played a key role in almonds’ explosion in popularity and production since it went into effect.

About the Almond Board of California

Almonds from California are a healthy, natural, wholesome and quality food. The Almond Board of California promotes almonds with a research-based approach to responsible farming, production and marketing on behalf of the more than 7,600 almond growers and processors in California, many of whom have third- and fourth-generation 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.
