Prior articles have appropriately urged companies to prepare for the California Air Resources Board’s ("CARB") Cap-and-Trade program (AB 32) by evaluating projected annual greenhouse gas ("GHG") emissions and by negotiating with CARB for an appropriate number of emission credits (called "allowances").

In 2013, the cap-and-trade will require all facilities that emit more than 25,000 tons of CO2e annually to provide allowances for each ton of emissions during a three year period.

The California League of Food Processors (formerly the Canners League of California) was organized January 12, 1905, with thirty initial members.  L. F. Graham, head of the J. H. Flickinger Company, San Jose, was elected President.  In 1905 the total California fruit and vegetable pack was 4.5 million cases. Dues were $1.00 per firm per month, and to this was added a small income from specific projects.  Operations were continued on this small budget income for several years.
