Almonds is supplied by a small group of large commercial
growers with modern orchards which are planted using
sophisticated growing techniques. Although Riverland
Almonds sorts and packs its product to standards
identical to California, it is pleased to also look
at customizing client’s requirements of sorting
standards and packaging, etc.
Almonds are harvested between late February and
May, with the factory operations building up once
harvest is under way. The Company’s two most
sought after export varieties are Nonpareil (usually
larger sizes) and Peerless inshell. The latter can
be comfortably shipped after April harvest, for
arrival in plenty of time for the seasonal pre Christmas
markets. Pricing follows the Californian market.
Packing is usually in 12.5 kg or 50 pound cartons.
