USApple Association is a Virginia-based nonprofit membership association for growers, marketers, equipment producers, and allied organizations dealing with apples, within forty states of the United States of America. It advocates on behalf of 7,500 apple growers and 400 companies in the apple business.[3][4][5] Their services include, but are not limited to, lobbying for the industry's interests at all the branches of the federal government and the public and to provide educational information, and newsletters for the growers. The association also strives to provide all involved in the U.S. apple industry the means to profitably produce and market apples and apple products.[6][7]
