Website Use Statement: Almond Board of California administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture. Established in 1950, the Board's charge is to promote the best quality almonds, California's largest tree nut crop. While Website visitors may obtain contact information for almond suppliers, this website does NOT include marketing and pricing strategies. Each producer or handler remains free to determine his or her own independent, competitive decisions concerning how to best market and price his or her products and in doing so is encouraged to compete in the marketplace with other producers and handlers to bring the best value possible to the consumer. 

Your Consent: By using our website, you consent to our collection and use of your personal information, as described in this Privacy Policy. If we change our privacy policies and procedures, we will post those changes on our website to keep you aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under what circumstances we may disclose it. 

Our Commitment to Privacy: Our Privacy Policy was developed as an extension of our commitment to combine valuable nutritional information and industry programs with the highest level of integrity in dealing with our consumers. Our Privacy Policy is designed to assist you in understanding how we collect, use and safeguard the personal information you provide to us and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our website.
