Legislative Advocacy and Outreach:

2015 CLFP Capitol Day

CLFP's Seventh Annual Capitol Day on February 17 was

a huge success and provided CLFP member companies

with the opportunity to meet and converse with

legislators and legislative policy staff. This annual event

allows member companies to build relationships and

educate policy makers about the issues impacting the

food processing industry.

The day began with a briefing breakfast that included

Assembly Member Kristin Olsen, the recently elected

Assembly Republican Leader, as CLFP's guest speaker.

Members then went to the Capitol to meet with their

legislators, which was timely as legislature had just begun

its 2015-16 legislative session. CLFP member companies

were able to meet the freshman legislators and acquaint

them with the food processing industry in California.

Member companies that participated in CLFP’s Capitol

Day were Campbell Soup Supply Company, Kraft Foods,

Sensient Natural Ingredients, Horizon Nut Company, The

Morning Star Packing Company, Mooney Star Farms,

Olam Spices & Vegetable Ingredients, J.G. Boswell

Tomato Company, Stanislaus Food Products and ConAgra

Foods. CLFP looks forward to increased participation in

this event in the future.

First Annual CLFP Washington, D.C. Fly-In

CLFP conducted its First Annual Washington, D.C., Fly-

In on March 17-19. A delegation of CLFP members

representing The Morning Star Packing Company,

Musco Family Olive Company, Olam Spices & Vegetable

Ingredients, Ingomar Packing Company, Kraft Foods and

Campbell Soup Supply Company met with the California

Central Valley Congressional delegation on issues relating

to water and food labeling.

During the D.C. visit, CLFP members urged Congress

to pass bipartisan legislation such as the Pompeo-

Butterfield Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (113th

Congress). The act would create national “GMO” labeling

uniformity while also addressing questions consumers

might have about the safety of “GMO” food ingredients

and providing consistent information to consumers

about “non-GMO,” “GMO” and “natural” food labels.

Such legislation would also strengthen the Food and

Drug Administration’s premarket safety review process

for new GM seeds by making it mandatory.
