Since 1900, the CCOA convention has served as an important forum for dairy farmers, processors, academics, allied industry members, and other partners. This year’s theme is California Dreaming: Adapting to Remain Competitive. We are proud of our program, which always provides valuable insight about ongoing challenges and emerging opportunities.
CCOA’s annual meeting is a longstanding, family-oriented tradition like no other. Through promotion, collaboration, and education, CCOA’s annual meeting and other activities help to further strengthens California’s position as the world leader in dairy production and processing, and the delivery of high-quality dairy products to the world marketplace.
