Almondco receives the crops of more than 140 growers annually. The large majority of this intake is hulled and shelled at the company’s Lyrup site. A new hulling and shelling facility is being constructed at Griffith to meet the growth and provide the Riverina with a purpose built facility to service the increasing number of new growers joining Almondco.
After product is hulled, shelled and sized at this primary processing phase across the two sites, the product is then freighted to the company’s award winning secondary processing and packing facility in Renmark South Australia.
More than 100 different almond products are produced in the built to purpose complex. A commitment to continuous improvement has resulted in a large number of innovative technological improvements being made on site to cope with increased volume the company now processes.
