We are able to match our almonds to the specific quality requirements of each customer.
There are approximately 30 varieties of almonds grown in California. There are a number of variety groups including Nonpareil, Sonora, Independence, Carmel Type, California (includes long types & short types), and Mission type.
The most popular USDA grades are Extra No 1, U.S. No. 1 (Supreme), Select Sheller Run (SSR), and Standard Sheller Run (STD). Using the same USDA grading standards, we can customize a specification starting from one of these grades.
We are known for supplying higher specs that surpass buyer expectations. These specs include:
- Confectionery grades (tighter specs for foreign material),
- J-spec or K-spec (Japanese or Korea Spec, targeting lower chip & scratch, lower serious damage, lower foreign material),
- Premium Grade (better visual appeal).
*Almonds are natural products and appearance/quality varies from lot to lot.
