Blue Diamond Growers applauds US-UK trade negotiations

"The UK is an important market for California almonds"

Blue Diamond Growers, a nonprofit grower-owned cooperative and the world's leading almond marketer and processor, applauds the formal start of trade negotiations between the United States and the United Kingdom."

"The United Kingdom is a valuable market for both value-added almond products and brown almonds. It is encouraging to see these trade negotiations taking place," said Mark Jansen, President and CEO for Blue Diamond Growers. "Ensuring California almonds have equal access in the UK with zero tariffs provides further stability for our grower-owners, most of whom operate small family farms."

Blue Diamond proudly supports the negotiators and will provide any assistance during the process. Obtaining zero duty on all almond categories and equal market access free of non-tariff barriers results in significant benefits for not only California almond farmers but also consumers in the United Kingdom.
