Our History

Arriving from Austria in 1924, Carl Peckler, a talented and enterprising baker, settled in Brooklyn, NY to begin making old-world baking ingredients for a new-world market.Β  Working in small batches, using only the finest ingredients available, he lovingly prepared his almond paste, marzipan, fruit fillings and flavorful spreads.Β  The business he founded was American Almond. Today, after more than 90 years, the company retains that same entrepreneurial spirit that Carl had back in his day.

In June 2015, American Almond was acquired by Barry Callebaut, the heart and the engine of the global chocolate and cocoa industry. Our new facility in Pennsauken, New Jersey ensures the highest quality assurance and safety standards. All of our products are certified kosher-pareve by the OK Kosher Certification (www.ok.org)

Whether you choose from our wide assortment of ready to ship time-tested products, or your application calls for a custom blend, a special roast, a certain smoothness or an out-of-the-ordinary size, our sales, customer service and research and development team are ready to assist you to find the right ingredients to make your next innovation a success.
