Our Blue Diamond Cooperative

Blue Diamond® is a strong, internationally known brand and supplier of the world’s highest quality almond products.

In 1910, 230 California almond growers formed an almond 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.

We believe in transparency and honest communication. And our work style is still team-based, working together to innovate, process, and distribute the largest portion of California’s almonds to the world.
