California Dried Fruit Coalition
The California Dried Fruit Coalition (CDFC) was formed as a cooperative effort by the raisin, dried plum, dried fig and date industries to promote the nutritional value and versatility of uses for these traditional dried fruits to policy makers influencing food purchase decisions for America’s schools and foodservice agencies.
The California Dried Fruit Coalition (CDFC) works cooperatively to keep these traditional dried fruits at the forefront of the minds of school foodservice administrators and nutritionists as real fruit ingredients and health snacks for consumers -- young and old alike.
California accounts for nearly all of the national production of raisins, dried plums, dried figs and dates. The following counties, including Riverside, Imperial, Fresno, Sutter, Madera, Merced,
Los Angeles, Tulare, Kern, Kings, Butte, Yuba, Tehama and Glenn, are the leading production areas.
