Each brings its own procurement challenges, from origin limitations to poor traceability. That’s why our model is based on breadth of supply, building relationships and improving efficiency for our customers. Our portfolio includes almonds, cashew, chia, hazelnuts, peanuts, pistachios, sesame and walnuts.
We are deeply invested at all points of the value chain, from orchard and field to the most technologically advanced processing facilities, which are all HACCP, ISO or BRC accredited. For 30 years our quality assurance teams have been pioneering proprietary technologies to address the industry's toughest processing and application challenges.
We also offer market insights and market intelligence enhanced by our relationships in country and with our fellow products teams.
As the sector faces economic, social and environmental challenges we have multiple programmes, partnerships and initiatives on traceability, farmer livelihoods, natural resources and community development. We support more than 21,000 smallholders.
We have made considerable investments across our procurement, processing and distribution operations. At the same time, we are continuing to build a greater direct presence in producing countries, one that aligns with our tradition of weaving sustainability and community development into our business.
