With careful consideration of our planet in mind, in 2013 Superior Almond will be installing a new 1MW Solar Facility.

Some of the benefits after just one year of use will include:

  • Projected offset of nearly 70 million pounds of Carbon Dioxide
  • It is equivalent to taking 365 cars off the road for 25 years

As one of the many improvements to Superior Almond in 2013, we have installed Satake’s new Evolution sorting machine; also known as the “Evo.”

Using RGB (full color red/green/blue) cameras to recognize the full color spectrum, this amazing machine can select the best inshell by its true color.

Recently expanded, our transportation fleet is stocked with Wesco & Premier Superhopper trailers that are built specifically for almonds.

These impressive, lightweight Wesco & Premier Superhopper trailers offer 13% to 25% more capacity than other almond harvest trailers on the market. This translates to fewer loads per grower and overall reduced transportation costs.
