About California Table Grapes
Welcome to the California Table Grape Commission website. A summary of the commission mission and its categories of activities is provided below.
The California Table Grape Commission was established by an act of the state’s legislature in 1967. Approved by a grower referendum in 1968, the commission has been affirmed through grower referenda every five years since its inception. The commission’s importance to the state and its mandate – to maintain and expand markets for fresh California grapes and to create new and larger intrastate, interstate, and foreign markets – was reaffirmed and its authorities broadened by the legislature in 1995, 1997 and again in 2001. The commission’s activities are divided into five areas: Research, Trade Management, Issue Management, Education and Outreach, and Advertising.
