About Blue Diamond

Headquartered in Sacramento, California, Blue Diamond® Growers is the world’s largest almond processing and marketing company. Founded in 1910, 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. Blue Diamond® led the development of California’s almond industry from a minor domestic specialty crop to the world leader in almond production and marketing.

The California almond crop is marketed to all 50 states and more than 90 foreign countries, making almonds California’s largest food export, the sixth largest U.S. food export and the #1 specialty crop in America. The California crop is currently valued at over $4 billion dollars.

Peanut-Free Processing:
We take our customers’ health seriously and understand the difficulty people face when they must worry about severe reactions to peanut allergens. That’s why, unlike most nut-processing plants, Blue Diamond® maintains a peanut-free facility. Products containing peanuts are prohibited.

Original Sweetened Almond Breeze Almond Milk: Almond Breeze, delicately sweetened with evaporated cane juice (a less processed form of sugar that retains more of sugar cane’s nutritional value) is a super-creamy and refreshing nondairy treat.

Almond Breeze® Original was created as a better-tasting milk alternative for our lactose-intolerant customers, but we soon discovered that many of our customers simply like the taste.
