Blue Diamond Growers has opened a new 52,000-sq-ft, energy-saving, sustainable manufacturing facility in Salida, CA. Designed to support future expansion, the facility uses Log5 technology across two of its natural pasteurization lines, one for processing whole almonds and the other for dry roasting on an integrated line. Energy-saving innovations include LED lighting, a multi-staged HVAC system and temperature-controlled processes. Perforated pipe buried beneath the facility will keep storm water on-site to recharge ground water and deliver it directly to the soil.
