Food safety and high quality standards are top priorities for Blue Diamond Growers. As a leader in almond innovation, we use Log5 state of the art technology for all of our pasteurization needs. Log5 achieves a minimum 4 log Salmonella reduction without compromising almond texture and skin quality. Log5’s advanced technology is effective environmentally friendly, eliminates the need for chemical treatment, and better preserves the quality of each Blue Diamond almond kernel, delivering a superior ingredient to our global brand and food service partners.

“We spent about two-and-a-half years researching equipment and found only one manufacturer that would give 5-log reduction or more without drastically changing the sunflower itself,” Dick says. “Log5 gave us log reduction and its equipment holds the characteristics of the sunflower. We tested the equipment, ordered it and installed it in our Fargo, N.D. facility.”
