Our Company

Rooted in History

Blue Diamond prides itself on its rich history and ability to innovate, process, and distribute the good of almonds all over the world. As a multi-generational cooperative, our years of expertise, collective vision, and enduring passion come together to cultivate a sustainable world.

We are located in the Central Valley of California, an area known for its diverse, growing economy and its stunning landscapes of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Our Mediterranean climate and extensive water supply make it one of the most agriculturally productive regions globally.

Today, we continue our legacy of delivering the best as we move into the future.

How We’ve Grown

In 1910, 230 California almond growers formed a cooperative with the following core values:

  • To build strong relationships among growers and with their customers;
  • To communicate directly and honestly; and
  • To work as a team to realize the best return on their investment.

More than a century later, Blue Diamond Growers still adheres to these values at every level of our operation.

Our Sustainability

For over 110 years, the Blue Diamond Growers co-op remains committed to sustaining member farms as well as the surrounding land.

See how we’re investing in sustainability efforts and incentives with our growers today, tomorrow, and beyond.
