Almond Board of California Food Safety Programs

  • Our California Almond Sustainability Program (CASP) is designed to monitor the industry’s sustainability practices and identify areas for improvement and education.
  • Our Food Quality and Safety Program (FQSP) strengthens the commitment to producing almonds in a safe, responsible manner, and provides consumers around the world with the highest level of confidence in our product.
  • Our Pasteurization Program addresses safety throughout the system, from growers and handlers to processing, packaging and sales. As a result of this program, all almonds are pasteurized before being sold to consumers in North America.
