Our love of all things almonds is a little nutty, but that’s precisely what we like about Blue Diamond. Not only is this company over 100-years-old, but it runs as a co-op, linking together over 3,000 almond lovers and growers who are just as obsessed with its product as we are. Not familiar with Blue Diamond? It’s quite possible you’ve already sampled one of their items, because the company is responsible for 80 percent of the world’s almond supply. That’s a lot of nuts, but what’s even more nuts is how this growing almond producer also manages to support and empower its community through ongoing philanthropy. Read on to find out what makes this beloved almond brand so special.
The History of Blue Diamond
Blue Diamond got its start in 1910 and has grown in the world’s largest almond processing and marketing company. The 102-year-old cooperative is owned by half of the state's almond growers who produce over 80 percent of the world almond supply. Today, this co-op includes more than 3,000 growers who lead California’s almond industry through innovation, commitment to quality, and a shared passion for the product.
Blue Diamond Company Mission
As the self-described “Almond People,” Blue Diamond growers share one guiding goal: to bring the benefits of almonds to the world. By offering a diverse line of products, Blue Diamond has been pioneering how we enjoy almonds and hopes each item offered is a measure of care and consistency, nurtured by the hands and minds of generations of growers.
