Pistachios

The two main growing areas are the USA and Iran.

Sourcing

Iranian Pistachios are grown in the cooler parts of the Iranian plateau, planted commercially for hundreds of years but only in the last 80 years been recognised as an agriculture crop for export. The Kernel is darker (more mauve/green) than its US counterpart, has a slightly higher unsaturated oil content and is subsequently more flavoursome, lending itself to roasting and salting in-shell.

USA Pistachios are generally cleaner and brighter in appearance than Iranian and often preferred by processors and manufacturers.

Processed Pistachio Products

Using whole kernels or, occasionally, broken grades of pistachios we can do a range of processing such as laser inspection, heat treating, roasting, size reduction (nibbing/chopping), grinding, pasting or making into pistachio butter. These pistachio products are used as ingredients in food manufacture, bakery, sauces, ready meals, confectionery, snacks and bars.

The groups of variants below are currently our most in-demand and thus most are available ex stock but we are happy to assist customers with their product enquiries and can offer bespoke or value engineered ingredients solutions. Please contact our NPD/sales team for more information.
