The Almond Industry weathered several challenges in 2019 and had some landmark wins. Almond Board of California (ABC) President and CEO Richard Waycott recounts the industry developing actionable data for sustainability goals, getting almonds included in Market Facilitation Programs, and achieving record-setting shipments.
As we move into 2020, ABC urges the industry to continue making strides towards the Almond Orchard 2025 Goals. One of the ways to help in those efforts is to participate in the California Almond Sustainability Program (CASP). Waycott said there are lots of events to introduce producers to the program in 2020 and welcomes involvement from the industry at any ABC committee or workgroup meeting.
