The California League of Food Processors, Sacramento, Calif., revealed a new name – the California League of Food Producers (CLFP).

The organization was originally formed in 1905 as the California Canners League and became the California League of Food Processors in 1981. The recent name change reflects the CLFP board of directors’ desire for a new name that better represented the industry it serves.

“We wanted a name that reflected the wide diversity of California’s food and beverage production industry,” says Janet Edwards, CLFP chair. “Our members produce a large range of high-quality, nutritious food products for consumers in California, the U.S. and throughout the world. In addition, the new name better encompasses CLFP member companies’ entire food production process from farm to fork.”
