I’m exceedingly proud of how committed our Blue Diamond team members are to the success of the cooperative and to our collective mission of support for grower families. The team continues to expand market opportunities while navigating complex supply chain and logistics challenges to ensure your almonds get into the hands of customers and consumers around the world. You’ll find updates about shipping challenges and potential solutions in articles from the Almond Alliance and our own VP of Global Supply Chain in this issue. With the 2022 bloom complete, the focus returns on ensuring adequate water supplies to meet orchard needs. Above average temperatures in mid-March have amplified discussions of a California drought situation again this summer. But just as spring is a time of renewal, hope and new growth, perhaps the unpredictable weather will surprise us once again. After all, I believe the best is yet to come.
