About CDFC

The California Dried Fruit Coalition (CDFC) was formed as a cooperative effort by the

California date, fig, prune and raisin industries to promote the nutritional value and

versatility of uses for these traditional dried fruits to policy makers influencing food

purchase decisions for America’s schools and foodservice agencies.


California accounts for nearly all of the national production of California dates, figs,

prunes and raisins. The following counties, including Riverside, Imperial, Fresno,

Sutter, Madera, Merced, Los Angeles, Tulare, Kern, Kings, Butte, Yuba, Tehama and

Glenn, are the leading production areas.
