Blue Diamond Almond Facts September-October 2022


Connecting the Orchard to the Aisle

This summer, Blue Diamond hosted Marcos Helou and his family. Helou is the owner of Bela Vista, Blue Diamond ’s licensee partner in Brazil. Blue Diamond grower, Galen Miyamoto, is featured on the packaging in Brazil, so what better way to strengthen Helou’s connection than to visit the Miyamoto home ? The two families talked and tasted all things almond, walked the Miyamoto orchards, and snapped a photo to commemorate this very special gathering of two leaders representing Almond Breeze from orchard to aisle. The guests also met with Mark Jansen, president and CEO, and Mel Machado, vice president of member relations. They visited the Sacramento and Turlock plants as well as the Almond Innovation Center. The Helou family was accompanied by Blue Diamond ’s managing director of Latin America and Caribbean, Edgar Ebel and Brazil country manager, Ricardo Ebel throughout their visit.
