Queen of Almonds
Native to the province of Alicante, located in the Mediterranean coast of Spain, Marcona almond is a botanically pure Spanish almond variety often referred to as the ‘Queen of Almonds’ or ‘golden nugget’.
With the decline in the cultivation of this variety due to the low yield, Alimentias has committed to protect the Marcona almond: not only do we avoid any type of waste by selecting almonds of all calibers, but we also promote its cultivation, hence helping the local economy, through the commercialization of almonds.
We carefully select the finest Marcona Almonds to create specialties according to artisanal processes while meeting the highest quality standards and sustainable methods, achieving a natural and tasty product.
Marcona almonds are perfect to eat as an accompaniment to our assortment of Spanish cheese.
