American Almond offers nut-based ingredients along with other traditional products used by the most demanding bakers, pastry chefs, culinary professionals as well as home bakers. The story of American Almond started in 1924 when Carl Peckler, a talented baker from Austria, settled in Brooklyn, New York to make old-world baking ingredients for a new-world market. Working in small batches and using only the finest ingredients available, he started producing almond pastes, marzipan, fruit fillings and spreads.


More than 90 years later, bakers and pastry chefs alike still trust American Almond and its wide assortment of premium quality products such as almonds, filberts, pistachios, cashews, walnuts available in many forms from sweetened pastes, unsweetned butters, nut flours, crunch toppings and inclusions to specialty processed nuts.
