THE ALMOND INDUSTRY

California is the world's largest producer of almonds.  With its unique climate, ideal growing conditions and abundant water supply, the 500-mile span from the Sacramento Valley to the Souther San Joaquin Valley produces more than 80% of the global almond supply and 100% of the domestic supply.  Over 70% of California's crop is exported, primarily to Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.  The remainder of the crop is consumed by the United States, the single largest market for California almonds.
