Our Experience

With over 30 years of production experience and deliveries to highest standard markets worldwide, we have developed our own internal production, food safety and aflatoxin protocols which has demonstrated its efficiency in respect to sustainable quality and reliable food safety.

In respect to lower price markets, we have refused blending of low qualities into our products as we consider this behavior as disrespectful to the product and the consumer. We have therefore developed our unique process for mechanically industrial opened pistachios “MO” which maintains and assure good kernel quality.

Our facility can process the best qualities down to lower priced qualities, but without compromising food safety assuring respect to the final consumer.

Processed with Care

“The pistachio nut, despite being protected by its shell or being roasted at high temperatures, remains a food item and deserves no less care than any other food, such as dairy products, in respect to quality control and food safety.”
