Almond Festival! Flavor, fun and innovation on the State Capitol’s west steps

CDFA Secretary Karen Ross joined almond farmers and industry representatives on the West Steps of the State Capitol this afternoon for the 2019 Almond Festival. The event drew legislators and staff members and showcased the industry’s efforts on innovation and sustainability, from reducing waste and dust to supporting the health of pollinators and extending the uses of co-products such as hulls and shells. Booths also offered samples and information about the ever-growing array of almond products, from cookies and snacks to ice cream, almond beverages, and almond candies. The “Exact E7000” harvester in the background, designed to minimize dust, was featured as an example of the industry’s innovative efforts to reduce environmental impacts.
