Almond blossom trees
Riverland Almonds is one of the three major handlers of almonds in Australia. The South Australian company had its beginnings in 1986 in Renmark. New and increased plantings on the southern side of the River Murray led to the establishment of a new factory in 1997 at Loxton, a town of eight thousand people, a bit less than three hours drive from the major city of Adelaide. The new state of the art, custom built, stand alone, facility has been modeled on the best facilities in California, where over 70 per cent of the world’s almonds are grown and processed.

The Riverland region is recognized as having the best climate in the world for almond growing. Its ideal climate conditions include hot summers plus normally dry weather in the late summer and autumn harvest period. Added to that is the undulating topography which enables low frost risk areas to be selected for plantings plus well drained soils and adequate irrigation water.
