Operations Projects Intern - Summer

In 1910 a cooperative of 230 California almond growers formed with the following core values:

  • To build strong relationships among growers and with their customers;

  • To communicate directly and honestly; and

  • To work as a team to realize the best return on their investment.

    More than a century later, Blue Diamond Growers still adheres to these values at every level of our operation. Our employees are strongly committed to the brand and to each other - the word "family" is often used to describe our culture.

    Today, Blue Diamond Growers represents more than 3,000 almond growers in California - the state that provides over 80% of the world's supply. We are one of the most recognized food brands in the world, with annual sales exceeding $1billion.

    We believe in transparency and honest communication. Our work style is team-based, working together to innovate, process, and distribute the best almond products to the world.

    After more than 100 years, our core values of integrity, partnership, innovation and quality remain strong. Our commitment to excellence has driven Blue Diamond's unprecedented growth, innovation, high quality, and value.

    You'll find these values at work throughout our company. We strive for a diverse workforce, always aiming for greater levels of inclusion. In addition to a robust benefits package, we offer an employee wellness and fitness program, in which a majority of our workforce currently participates.
