With more than twenty years of history in Kern County, Famoso Nut Company is owned and operated by local growers. At Famoso our goal is to ensure the production of high quality almond meats and inshell products and customer service that only local owners can provide. Food safety and careful handling in the plant accompany sound financial management and attractive grower payouts. Whether you are an Almond grower, an Almond buyer, or you just love the taste of fresh Almonds, Famoso Nut Company can deliver a world class level of service.
At Famoso Nut Company, we work hard and are committed to safe and secure almond products. We adhere to British Retail Consortium Global Standards (BRCGS) food safety standards to ensure that each step of the production process is reliably safe. We have structured our daily processes to have numerous quality check points to ensure that our production process meets our customers needs. Ultimately our goal is to provide our customers with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the almonds they are receiving are safe.
We produce a high quality consistent product that meets our customers need. We are able to do this because of our dedication, years of experience, our honed internal processes and our sophisticated almond processing database. We provide a high quality product by combining advanced electronic processing equipment with highly focused and well trained personnel. Every almond that leaves our facility has gone through a series of specialized pieces of equipment including optical scanners and is reviewed on conveyors by personnel before being packed and shipped.
Our grower’s send their product to us year after year because of the high grower returns they receive, the timely and detailed reports and our partnership approach to relationships. Our culture here at Famoso is a blend of ingenuity and efficiency and that translates into more money in your pocket. All of our growers know that they have a standing invitation to come see their product run whenever they want or just to tour the facility. We know how expensive growing almonds can be and the importance of getting a competitive return. We value the trust you put in us when you decide to send your product to us and we won't let you down.
