Blue Diamond Growers are over 100 years old. Before almonds were planted in California, they had only been grown in the Mediterranean. They have been growing almonds and creating new products for more than a century. By 1910, when Blue Diamond was founded, the total almond crop in California was 2000 tons, unshelled. Blue Diamond began its natural food group in 1977. The incredibly popular Almond Breeze almond milk and Nut Thins crackers were introduced. They have remained popular sellers and have expanded their repertoire of flavors.
