Providing One Voice for Blue Diamond Almond Growers

“Everyone owes a part of one’s time and money to the industry in which one is engaged. No one should withhold support from an organization that is striving to improve the conditions within one’s business.”
—Theodore Roosevelt

Blue Diamond Growers is committed to the highest level of political advocacy. By representing over half of the almond growers within California, it is our responsibility to develop a sound government affairs strategy for our cooperative, grower-owners, employees and business operations.  Our advocacy on behalf of Blue Diamond before state, federal and international governments is to promote a better understanding of our industry. Our goal is to create effective regulatory and legislative cooperation on issues that directly affect Blue Diamond, California almonds and agriculture.

Cooperation is a powerful tool with those who influence our business. It provides an opportunity to build relationships with congressional and legislative representatives who understand agriculture and want to help growers continue to produce the best quality and safest food supply in the world.


Political Action

The Blue Diamond Political Action Committee allows the cooperative to maintain a strong voice in the state and federal legislature and within various trade and regulatory agencies. Through the cooperative’s PAC, Blue Diamond is able to continue its efforts in protecting our grower-owners interests, ensuring they are able to continue growing California almonds. We welcome you to take part in this effort by completing the PAC contribution form below.
