    Why Mediterranean Almonds?

    Hard and perfectly sealed, shell that constitutes a physical barrier for pest and reduce the needs of PPP’s – Plant Protection Products

    Self-compatible and late blooming, locally adapted

    Higher content in unsaturated fats

    Higher content in oleic acid (Omega 9), Mediterranean almonds are a natural “pill” of olive oil

    Incredibly tasty flavour

    Lower content in linoleic acid (-15%) = longer shelf life.
