Almonds

We are one of world's largest growers of almonds with extensive orchards in Australia and California, we also buy from other growers. We deliver year-round fresh almonds to customers worldwide. 

Almonds

Our processing operations in Mildura, Australia, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam and California, USA provide multiple ingredient forms, enabling direct control over every stage of the production process.

 

Our experienced marketing managers facilitate information flow from our customers to our almond production teams so we can provide direct paddock-to-warehouse solutions from both our origins.

 

We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and supporting the communities where we operate. This includes investing in state-of-the-art irrigation systems and creating pollinator habitats. We are also working with the Almond Industry Boards of both Australia and California to participate in industry-wide sustainability initiatives.

Orchards

At our vast orchards in Australia and the USA (California), we implement the latest agronomy practices. We incorporate high levels of mechanisation to ensure we produce excellent yields of quality, flavoursome almonds with the best environmental footprint.

 

Around 4 million trees planted across 13 orchards in New South Wales and Victoria, Australia, grow Non Pareil, Carmel and Price almond varieties. In California, USA, we produce mainly Non Pareil and Carmel varieties, but also Sonora, Buttes and Monterrey varieties.

 

Sensors in our almond trees are combined with data from tree trunks, drip line flow, soil and weather predictions to track growth and identify issues quickly. The system helps anticipate and plan irrigation requirements.

 

Our presence in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres allows to constantly deliver new season almonds to our global customers.

Processing

We provide customised snacking and ingredient formats for natural and blanched almonds. Using state-of-the-art technology, we offer whole, sliced, diced, slivered, meal and split formats, retaining their rich flavour and nutritional value. Through our facilities across three continents, customers can enjoy a reliable supply of tailored solutions from whole nuts to ingredients. 

 

Our USA operations are fully integrated following the acquisition of Hughson Nut Inc. in 2019. We offer steam sterilisation and pasteurisation through our processing plants in California, and are equipped to complete orders to customer specifications and ensure product safety.

 

Our BRC-certified processing facility near Mildura in Northern Victoria, Australia, ensures single-point control of almond quality, traceability and safety from orchard to customer.

 

Our blanching and ingredient processing facility in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam, conforms to the world’s highest food safety and quality standards. Roasting is undertaken on variable capacity lines capable of processing different grades of almonds with consistent flavour, aroma and texture.
