Nut News: The Changing Dynamics and Trends in The Almond Industry
Alan Burwell, VP of Marketing and Innovation, Select Harvest USA, stopped by this episode of Nut News to provide his thoughts on the changes happening in consumer behavior regarding almonds and the innovations driving the industry as a whole.
Almond production has risen over the past 10 to 15 years, and Burwell sees a direct correlation to what is happening in the consumer segment.
“Almonds are showing up all across the consumer food landscape,” Burwell said. “A particular trend we’ve seen grow in normalization and adoption is the Keto diet. Keto speaks very specifically to the qualities of almonds.”
Burwell said Select Harvest USA experienced growth in both exports and the domestic markets, and he believes Select Harvest USA can provide innovation to many of the products utilizing almonds as an ingredient, especially in the snacking category.
While he wasn’t ready to get into specifics, Burwell teased some product innovations Select Harvest will announce in the future.
“If you’re someone who limits their intake of almond snacks due to too much salt or calories, I think you’re going to be excited about what we have in the pipeline for you,” he said.
