We Help Bring California's Goodness to the World!

The California League of Food Producers (CLFP) has been the voice and the advocate for California's food-producing industry since 1905. CLFP represents the interests of large and small food processors and beverage producers throughout the state and works to help ensure a favorable and profitable business environment for its members and the entire food-producing industry.

COVID-19 & the Food Processing Industry

CLFP is in regular contact with government agencies, industry and association coalitions regarding COVID-19 and its impact on the state's food processing industry and is providing regular briefings for its members. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Food and Drug Branch has compiled links to resources to assist the food industry during COVID-19. CDPH also has published a checklist for employers experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19 in the workplace.

Additional COVID-19 information also is available on our Member Resources page.

COVID-19 has created challenging times for many people trying to find food and other supplies.
