One year ago, as talk of California’s drought increased, the almond industry faced questions from the media concerning its use of water .Today, with help from Almond Board of California’s (ABC’s) proactive public relations efforts, those questions have been answered by an industry committed to a sustainable future. On June 9, the Public Relations Society of America presented a Silver Anvil to ABC for demonstrating that growers’ responsible water management began long before the height of the drought.
