Resolute in our desire to be the best Almond processor in California
Turkhan Foods began in 2007 as a family owned walnut and almond processing company. Although relatively young, Turkhan Foods’ founder is a third generation nut processor with substantial international experience and global connections. The company’s management and processing team is also well seasoned in the nut industry with both domestic and International expertise. Reflecting the global nature of the business, Turkhan Foods is culturally diverse, representing many nationalities with multi-lingual capabilities.
While global in its marketing approach, the company has a local, small business approach to business. Our company is founded on the principles of Honesty, Integrity, and a motto of “Ease of Doing Business” in all its dealing. We also pursue “Quality, “Service” and “Excellence” in all our endeavors.
Turkhan Foods believes in its business philosophy and proud of its success and rapid growth. The company opened its’ initial processing plant in Ripon in 2010, processing both almonds and walnuts. We acquired the operations of the Linden Nut Company in early 2013. This expansion will allow us to increase production and provide better services to our customer and growers.
It is no accident the Company is located in the center of the San Joaquin Valley, the heart of California’s and the world’s almond and walnut growing region. There is no better location in the USA for almonds and walnuts than here in California due to its soil and microclimates. California also has the best growers and agricultural infrastructure in the world. The company cultivates and relies on its network of growers throughout California’s Central Valley.
