The Chamber of Commerce proudly welcomed United Agribusiness League (UAL) to its membership and helped commemorate this with a ribbon cutting on Thursday evening, December 8. Get to know your new member, UAL!
UNITED AGRIBUSINESS LEAGUE’S MISSION IS TO UNITE AGRIBUSINESS’ BY PROVIDING MEMBERS WITH ECONOMIC SOLUTIONS, BENEFITS AND SERVICES BOTH DOMESTICALLY AND INTERNATIONALLY
In 1980, local farms in rural Orange and Riverside Counties were small family-owned businesses. Operating independently, they had no collective purchasing power or influential voice in public affairs. The founders of UAL believed that by uniting these small farmers into a single organization, a larger presence would be formed, and a significant impact would be made toward agriculture’s future growth and sustainability. The initial group consisted of 6 members, most of whom were dairy farmers.
Since 1980, United Agribusiness League has grown from its original 6 members to more than 1,100 agricultural employers and over 25 agricultural trade associations. A symbiotic relationship exists between UAL and its members and the advantage is undeniable.
Town Hall Meetings, Annual Meetings, and Conferences provide invaluable open discussion forums. UAL and its members network, educate, and brainstorm on issues critical to their businesses. With a united voice, legislation can be positively steered to protect our environment, water resources, wild habitat, and air quality. As an educational resource, members can improve efficiencies to remain competitive, viable businesses.
The vision, knowledge, and experience gleaned from our 25-year history strengthen our future. The challenges to come will be met with integrity and a commitment to the long-term viability of our industry. Together, as a united voice, United Agribusiness League will continue to influence the future of agriculture.
