The California Department of Food & Agriculture (CDFA) announces the results of the Continuation Referendum for the California Pistachio Commission (CPC) stating the California pistachio producers did not achieve the required vote to continue the CPC.

This is the first check-off program to be voted out of existence by its participants.

The referendum results showed that 61% of the producers voted in the referendum and of those voting, 66% of the producers, representing 41% of the voted volume, voted to continue the CPC. This vote fell short of the requirement that for the CPC to continue, at least 65% of the producers, must vote in favor.
