Due to the continuing uncertainty regarding COVID-19 as it relates to large gatherings, the California League of Food Producers (CLFP) Board of Directors has decided to not hold an in person or virtual Food Processing Expo 2021. After thorough research and consideration, this was a difficult decision to make. We thank our longtime exhibitors and attendees and look forward to seeing you in 2022! CLFP recently began holding regular Industry Issues Webinars, which will continue into 2021 and will be posted on this site.
