About Us

Our Mission

As the primary advocate, our mission is to protect the sustainability of the citrus industry now and for future generations.  In order to do this, we advocate for sound policies across State and Federal governments as well as provide a forum for citrus growers to deal with the industry’s collective challenges.

Goals

  • Credibly represent the needs of the California citrus grower to local, state, and federal elected officials and policy makers.
  • Foster communication and cooperation between all segments of the citrus industry.
  • Deliver relevant, timely, and unbiased information to the membership.

Our Members

CCM members are California citrus growers.  Their farms are located across the state and vary in size and scale. We equally represent the interests of our members regardless of size or geographic location.

Our History

CCM was founded in 1977 by those who felt the need to unite their fellow growers into a cohesive, powerful force. In its earliest days, CCM’s mission was to deliver price information and market data to growers. Over the years, our mission has expanded to meet the growing and changing needs of the industry.
