We produce our almond oil cold pressed in our production unit Caloy in Modesto, California. Our production is the world's largest producer of almond oil.

For our high quality almond oil cold pressed we only use the selected high quality ripe almonds of the sweet almond varieties Prunus dulcis (Miller) D.A. Webb var. dulcis or Prunus dulcis (Miller) D.A. Webb var. amara (D.C.) Buchheim or a mixture of both. We have been working with our Californian farmers for many years. In regular audits, our quality management checks the cultivation conditions and compliance with our agreements. This enables us to guarantee not only permanent availability, but also consistently high quality.

We press our almond oil cold pressed in our own oil mill with four presses individually developed and manufactured for us by the company "Kernkraft" in Germany. These unique, technically new presses enable us to achieve the highest quality cold pressing of almonds.

Many oil mills have frequent product changes and therefore use their universal presses for different oils. We focus exclusively on nut oils, thus avoiding any mixing. Using our special presses for nut oils enables us to produce a higher quality than with universal presses. We obtain our almond oil cold pressed by gentle mechanical pressing. We work without additional pressing aids. Thus, we produce 100% high-quality almond oil with a gentle process.

As world market leader for almond oil, product quality and delivery reliability are particularly important to us. For this purpose, we maintain large storage capacities in the USA and in various European countries. This enables us to ensure supply anywhere, anytime and just in time. We not only promise security of supply and delivery – we can guarantee it.

Our 6-stage quality control system ensures seamless quality control:

  1. by our agricultural engineers on the field
  2. by our own Caloy laboratory at the delivery of almonds
  3. by monitoring the gentle pressing process with our special nut presses
  4. after gentle pressing to oil
  5. final inspection of the oil before it is stored in our own tanks
  6. before delivery to the customer by our officially DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 accredited Gustav Heess laboratory in Germany

Sustainability & responsibility

In California, more than 90% of almond farms are family businesses, which are mostly managed in the third or fourth generation. In addition, almost three quarters of almond farms are smaller than 40 hectares. With the Almond Sustainability Program (CASP) introduced in 2009, sustainability measures are implemented in the areas of water, air quality, energy and land (nutrient use, pest control and bee health). Water consumption is a particularly important issue in the cultivation of almonds. This has been reduced by 33% using micro-irrigation systems, irrigation on demand rather than on time, and by optimising irrigation through soil maps per 0.5 kg of almonds.

Waste is minimized by using all the by-products of almond cultivation. Besides the almond kernel, the two by-products shell and skin are used as animal feed and as stable bedding.

Bees are the most important helpers on the almond farm, as they are needed for pollinating the almond blossoms. Through the Honey Bee Best Management Practices (BMPs) program, the almond farmers actively support bees and as one measure, 93% of the farmers offer the bees clean water to drink and cool down during the pollination period.

Our own production facility Caloy is strategically located in the middle of the growing area. This saves CO2 through short transport distances and guarantees a fresh quality of the almonds.
