Nuts are a profitable market world-wide and continue to thrive in our homeland. With a breakage of less than 2%, Stevenson spiral chutes can help this booming market make the most of their dollar. Today, the states of California, Arizona and New Mexico make up 100% of the U.S. commercial pistachio production.
California is 99% of that number, with over 312,000 acres planted throughout 22 counties. There are 950 producers in the United States, and the annual farm gate value of pistachios represents more than $1.6 billion to the California economy and more than $16 million to the states of Arizona and New Mexico.
