“Elaine Trevino’s experience with the almond industry — an industry heavily reliant on exports — from the United States’ largest exporting state, makes her an ideal candidate for representing and advocating on behalf of U.S. agricultural interests to expand export opportunities and maintain U.S. competitiveness in the global marketplace," says AFIA President and CEO Constance Cullman.

“We look forward to working with Ms. Trevino to leverage opportunities to create new trade agreements, tackle trade barriers and open new markets for the U.S. animal food industry.”
