Blue Diamond History Spans Over a Century
SacTV.com "Video of the Day" review by
Alex Cosper on Feb. 5, 2012
Blue Diamond Growers stands out as one of the
longest running businesses ever from Sacramento. This video documents the evolution of the almond company since its founding in 1910.
The video takes us through the decades, pointing out that the company has been a global provider of almonds
since the 1950s. Blue Diamond puts an emphasis on high standards for healthy natural food. "Blue Diamond Centennial
Video" was produced in 2010, celebrating the company's 100 year history.
One of the eras covered by the video is the 1920s when scientific research found that almonds give
people energy, protein and minerals, which led to a surge in almond sales. Blue Diamond emerged as
the world's largest almond processing and marketing company in the sixties. The almond has surpassed
the peanut in popularity, which has helped Blue Diamond become the world's leading almond company.
