We currently maintain around 15,000 hectares (ha) of almond orchards in Australia, a country known for its natural agricultural advantages, namely a favourable climate and a low incidence of pests and diseases. In California we farm around 4,500 ha of almond orchards as well as buy from other growers.
Our processing operations in Mildura, Australia and Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam provide multiple ingredient forms, enabling direct control over every stage of the production process. In both Australia and California, Olam has reliable and trusted relationships with third-party, high-quality processing operators to ensure quality, consistency and safety.
Our experienced marketing managers facilitate information flow from our customers to our almond production teams so we can provide direct paddock-to-warehouse solutions from both our origins.
We are committed to reducing our environmental footprint and supporting the communities where we operate. This includes investing in state-of-the-art irrigation systems and creating pollinator habitats. We are also working with the Almond Industry Boards of both Australia and California to participate in industry-wide sustainability initiatives.
