This event will be held on Tuesday, December 9th from 9:30 a.m. to Noon at the California Department of Food and Agriculture, 1220 N Street – Main Auditorium, Sacramento, CA 95814. Registration is required.
California is the largest agricultural producer and exporter in the nation with more than $18 billion in exports. On average, the state’s farmers and ranchers export approximately 26 percent of their production. Connecting farmers, ranchers and food processor to the opportunities available in the global marketplace helps support jobs throughout California’s economy.
