WE'RE THE
ALMOND PEOPLE

OUR FAMILY TREE IS
OVER 100 YEARS OLD.

 

Once upon a time in 1850, a bunch of farmers planted some almond orchards in the awesome soil (for almonds that is) of Sacramento, Monterey and Los Angeles. They probably didn’t have much else to do, because where their farms were situated didn’t get much rain. It reminded them of the Mediterranean climate they had pulled out all stops to leave behind.

 

One day, around 1910, they had so many almonds they started ‘The California Almond Growers Exchange. To cut a long story short, the exchange became the world’s largest nut processing plant covering 33 city blocks on around 90 acres.

 

Around 1915, The Exchange adopted as a logo, the ‘blue diamond’- that’s the rarest diamond in the world (in case you were wondering). It was a subtle way of saying; we’re for highest quality.

 

OK, so from then on a lot of other interesting stuff happened, our orchards blossomed, our families grew and our Blue Diamond Growers Co-operative became over 3000 strong. That’s a lot of us farming nuts obsessed with almonds!

 

Over the years, we have become experts in developing delicious, new ways for you to enjoy the nuts of our labor.

 

We even hold patents for our processing and product developments including one for making Almond Breeze so you can see there is a lot of history and family pride in every carton of Almond Breeze.

 

It’s that special level of expertise and single-minded dedication that makes our Almond Breeze almond milk uniquely rich, creamy and remarkably delicious.

 

Looking to the future, we have some really great things to share with you, but most of all, is our love for Almond Breeze.

WE LOVE ALMONDS

Almonds are a natural super food and provide a source of fibre, iron and calcium.

Ok, there may be no such thing as a perfect food, but almonds come in high on the super-food list. A top plant source for protein and vitamin E, each little almond also contains fibre, calcium, iron and other important nutrients. And did we mention, they taste awesome!




WE'RE DIFFERENT

For a start, we listened to your feedback. That’s different. After numerous taste tests and trials, we discovered that you preferred your almond milk to have a subtle hint of almond taste.

When some of you asked us for Almond Breeze with no added sugar, we listened again and delivered Unsweetened Almond Breeze. You were right, it’s been walking off the shelves ever since.



IT'S ABOUT TASTE

We know that taste is everything, especially when you’re trying to lead a healthy lifestyle. After 100 years of experience we can safely say that the best taste comes from the highest quality almonds. Our almonds. When you start with quality almonds, it’s so much easier to find the right balance between flavour, texture and nutritional value. Maybe that is why we have now become the world’s most popular almond milk brand?



IS IT BETTER THAN MILK?

Almond Breeze is made using the highest quality almonds – a natural super food, and when consumed as part of a balanced diet, is a great-tasting, healthy milk alternative for those looking to avoid soy and dairy milk.

 

With less than half the calories of skim and reduced fat (1.5%) milk, Unsweetened Almond Breeze doesn’t weigh you down because it is completely free from lactose, dairy, gluten and soy, making it easy to digest and a great substitute for dairy milk.

 

Naturally low in sugar and carbohydrates, with no cholesterol and a low level of saturated fat, Unsweetened Almond Breeze is great to use in smoothies, with cereal or in a whole range of recipes. What more could you ask for?
