Your Political Voice

Western Growers is on the front line in Sacramento, Phoenix and Washington, D.C. fighting on our members’ behalf. We never stop working to make sure you have what you need to produce the healthy food that feeds the world.

Water supply is ranked by Western Growers' members as one of the most important sustainability priorities requiring the association's full attention and support.  It is something WG's staff focuses on every day.

Western Growers represents our members to mitigate unbalanced legislative and regulatory proposals that would place undue burden and restrictions on the fresh produce farmers who grow our food.

Labor shortages and work place regulations are critical issues for our industry and our employees.

We know our members care for their land and natural resources; after all, it is their livelihood. Our Government Affairs team works with policy makers to ensure, if legislation is required, it is developed using sound science and proven data.

Western Growers is engaged in the defense of critical crop protection tools and remains active at the federal, state and local levels.

Immigration has been a critical issue for Western Growers members. For years, we have fought for a legal and stable workforce that not only supports our industry but ensures those who have worked along side our members are treated with decency and respect.

With the ever-changing landscape of health care, our members count on Western Growers' expertise for guidance on providing effective and compliant health care benefits for their workforces.
