Innovation is part of our DNA. We view innovation as the application of a better solution that not only solves a problem, but ultimately delivers a better product. Partnering with leading research institutions, is just one of the ways we innovate. Sometimes this is through technology and other times, it is simply old-fashioned, agricultural ingenuity. In order to continue to provide the highest quality almonds to our buyers, we are committed to exploring new and better ways to do business, improve our overall sustainability and reduce our carbon footprint. Working with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Research Universities, the Almond Board of California, scientists across the globe, equipment manufacturers and our select growers we invest resources to discover water use efficiency improvements, clean energy production, alternative uses for co-products, and process improvements.
