A Statement from John Talbot

During these uncertain times, it’s reassuring to know that the farmers who we rely on to put food on our tables are continuing to provide for our families and neighbors despite these unprecedented circumstances. Rest assured; our California dairy farmers are working hard to deliver safe, healthy food for you to enjoy in your homes.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) will ensure that Californians’ needs are met by continuing its food inspection work while the agency’s senior leadership is utilizing extensive experience in sanitary practices, preventative controls, and emergency response to work closely with the California Office of Emergency Services, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), sister state agencies, federal partners, county agricultural commissioners, and the agriculture industry.

It's during times like these that we’re all reminded of the importance of farmers and the behind-the-scenes work they do. I know I’m not alone in expressing my gratitude to each and every individual who keeps the agricultural industry running and the world well-fed.
