Crunching on the Safe Side
With almonds holding the title as California’s #1 agricultural export, it’s never been more important for our industry to be doing everything possible to provide a plentiful, healthful and safe food product. That’s why Almond Board of California is 100% committed to developing initiatives aimed at topics of concern for both almond producers and consumers.
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.
