This relentless commitment allows us to quickly isolate and solve problems, and our constant vigilance ensures our customers are always receiving the safest products.

Quality Assurance Processes

Simply put, our customer demands become our benchmark for excellence - each and every lot. We specialize in meeting customized specifications and welcome our customer’s internal auditing processes.

Laboratory Results

Working with a food safety consultant and reputable, first-class third-party U.S.D.A. certified laboratories, we test for aflatoxin using the HPLC method, along with pathogens, yeasts and molds. Special testing and COA’s are available upon request (additional cost may be applied).

Plant Upgrades

We are constantly making plant upgrades to improve quality, food safety and boost our output to meet ever-growing demand - on time and as expected. We design and manufacture much of our own equipment to improve quality and sanitation. Recent upgrades to our shelling facility have increased capacity by 100% and reduced physical defects by as much as 50%.

Where Homegrown Meets Hightech

Meeting the global demand for California almonds takes relentless, meaningful innovation. Innovation in quality, safety, efficiency, and accuracy.

Our technology, including our internal dashboard and electronic monitoring, allows us to hand-select the most appropriate raw goods for each of our customers, taking into consideration vast amounts of quality information. Our database collects and displays a full array of QC information for every bin in our inventory. We are constantly innovating new ways to reduce product damage, improve quality, and to better serve our customers.

Our custom tracking software provides control inputs and QC auto-alerts throughout the process. We use it to identify potential issues in real-time. This ensures that finished goods meet or exceed customer specs.

Our motto is: “If we are doing things right, we’ll never be done.”
