CLFP Launches New Name, Logo & Website
CLFP recently changed its name from the California League of Food Processors to the California League of Food Producers and also unveiled a new logo and website.
CLFP was originally formed in 1905 as the California Canners League. The recent name change reflects the CLFP board of directors' desire for a name that better reflects the industry it serves.
"We wanted a name that reflected the wide diversity of California's food and beverage production industry," said CLFP Chair Janet Edwards of the Musco Family Olive Co. "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."
