Almonds are an amazingly healthy and natural product – one, that if the industry has its way, will become a natural part of the consumer’s everyday diet. Imagine every Australian eating a handful of almonds every day.
To do that the industry needs to talk and coordinate its efforts right from which varieties we grow, what characteristics they have, how we promote them, the distribution channels and sale to the consumer. If the industry achieves balance the future for almonds is very bright indeed!
