Walnut Marketing Board

Walnut Marketing Board

The Walnut Marketing Board was established in 1933 to represent the walnut growers and handlers of California. The Board is funded by mandatory assessments of the handlers. The WMB is governed by a Federal Walnut Marketing Order. The Board promotes usage of walnuts in the United States through publicity and educational programs. The Board also provides funding for walnut production and post-harvest research.
