Florida Citrus Mutual Visits California

Last week, CCM had the pleasure of joining Florida Citrus Mutual as they toured some of our members’ operations, including Wonderful Citrus in Delano and Gless Ranch in Bakersfield. Florida Citrus Mutual’s new President, Matt Joyner, and former Chairman Glenn Beck made the trip to California to visit the operations and attend the International Research Conference on HLB in Riverside hosted by Citrus Research Board.

The visit was an opportunity for each of our industries to understand the other’s challenges. We work collaboratively with Florida Citrus Mutual and Texas Citrus Mutual each year on Federal Funding for HLB and pest management programs. Presenting a united industry while understanding each other’s specific funding needs helps us in our advocacy efforts in D.C.

We want to thank the Florida team and our tour hosts for their time.
