The Raisin Administrative Committee is a federal marketing order, led by 47 growers, packers and a public member. The RAC is directly overseen by the United States Department of Agriculture and was created in 1949 as a result of the Agricultural Marketing Agreement Act of 1937.
The Raisin Administrative Committee meets regularly at our headquarters in downtown Fresno, employs a staff of 12, collects and distributes delivery data weekly, shipment data monthly, publishes an annual report of industry statistics and policies, actively and directly markets into 18 foreign nations, and collaborates with the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service.
What we offer:
Statistics, data, and reports regarding all of the above, as well as historical information and data originating in 1949. You may receive the Raisin Industry Update by subscribing on our home page.
