Almonds are on Fire, says Mark Jansen

Blue Diamond Almonds CEO Mark Jansen told FoodNavigator-USA that “almonds are on fire,” with double-digit sales growth in all categories. California’s almond production has doubled over the last ten years, and quadruped over the last thirty. The 2013 harvest exceeded estimates, weighing in at a staggering 2 billion pounds.

Did we see this coming? Of course we did. But even we were surprised to learn that almonds are the #1 nut in all new snack products launched in North America. And while we do love ready-to-eat almond products, something off the shelf in the market is no match for cooking with almonds from scratch. That’s why we wrote our book, which is full of recipes for food you won’t find in any store.
