It’s About Quality

September 6, 2018

We truly care about quality. Combined with our responsive service and extensive variety of products, it is one of our core values. Much more than a statement though, we ensure quality is the most important aspect of our products all the way from sourcing to shipping. Providing high quality products at a fair price has been at the cornerstone of our business for the past 40 years and will continue to be now and in the future.

So what is our quality story? Quite simply, we use better ingredients and include more of these better ingredients in our bulk products than most. Sunburst is one of our most classic mixes and a traditional GORP (Good Old Raisins Peanuts) snack. Even our classic mixes promise the best quality though. We use Virginia x-large peanuts (versus smaller runner peanuts), larger Supreme almonds (versus small puny ones) and our plump, sweet Chilean flame raisins (versus regular Golden or Thompson raisins) in the mix.

Interested in more about our quality process in manufacturing? Here are some highlights:

  • Starting with our highest quality sourced products, we roast nuts & seeds daily and blend over 60 bulk snack mixes in our SQF, Kosher and organic production facilities in Charlotte and Orlando. Our purchasers stay on top of the latest trends to ensure that we stock the most up-to-date items available.
  • After arriving in Receiving, many of our products are stored in our temperature and humidity-controlled warehouse and coolers to maintain quality.
  • We roast our nuts and seeds daily in small batches to ensure the highest quality product.
  • All of our snack mixes are hand blended to ensure the greatest quality and reduce the chance of breakage.
  • We sell our products in bulk and some of the most unique packaging in the industry. The quality of our packaging is aligned with the quality of our products with a wide variety of options.
  • In the warehouse, the boxes are stocked by variety and date and moved daily to our seven warehouses across the U.S. to help rotate through the freshest products.
  • We recognize that our customers need fast, reliable service, so most orders are delivered within 24-48 hours.
