A family responsibility.
Mariani Nut Company was founded in 1972 by cousins Jack and Dennis Mariani who came from the Santa Clara Valley. Looking for new farming opportunities outside the burgeoning Santa Clara Valley, they found a very similar micro-climate just 60 miles northeast of San Francisco in the town of Winters. The company initially began as a very small processor that mainly handled the walnuts from its own orchards.
Later, in the 1970’s, Jack’s brother Martin joined the company. The company then ventured into the almond industry and further expanded the operation.
Over the course of three decades, Mariani Nut has grown steadily, due in large part to the quality-conscious growers whose product we process. In addition, a highly dedicated and skilled employee base has allowed us to continuously improve our manufacturing processes and quality controls. This has ultimately allowed us to consistently meet our customers’ specifications and expectations for more than 35 years.
