Locals who enjoy Blue Diamond products can rest assured that their favorite almonds are one of the most sustainably-processed commodities in the county following the organization’s recent recognition as Green Business Certified.
Following a comprehensive certification process, the Blue Diamond Growers facility in Salida recently earned the prestigious distinction and is the first business in Stanislaus County to be recognized by the California Green Business Network, Stanislaus County, for demonstrating sustainability as a top business priority.
“Blue Diamond has a long 110-year history as an almond cooperative, and within that history has been a commitment to sustainability across all our facilities — Sacramento, Salida and Turlock,” said Blue Diamond’s Senior Vice President, Global Supply, Brian Barczak. “As we look toward the future, our investment in sustainability strengthens our relationship with our customers and consumers, provides benefits to our local communities, and lays the groundwork for the continuation of our legacy as a cooperative. This recognition means a great deal to us as it shows that we are doing our part to build a healthier and more sustainable future for our local communities.”
