Government Affairs

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

 

As a grower-owned Cooperative, Blue Diamond works on behalf of our growersto advocate on issues important to the Cooperative and promote a better understanding of Blue Diamond and the almond industry. As the world’s leading almond marketer and processor, it is our responsibility to develop sound government affairs strategy for our cooperative, grower-owners, employees, and business operations.  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 administrations.  The PAC provides Blue Diamond the opportunity to build relationships and support Members who are champions of agriculture and the almond industry. Through the Blue Diamond PAC, our grower-owners have a collective voice in California and Washington D.C.
