MICROBIOLOGIST II – Stockton, CA

Since 1912, when it was started by a group of California walnut growers, Diamond of California® was on a mission to bring the bounty from California’s Central Valley walnut orchards to America’s tables.  From the beginning, we sought out the very best with the knowledge that Diamond Nuts would be used in treasured and new family recipes.  Today, we bring a wider range of nuts from our growers and farms to tables worldwide. Now over 105 years later, we are still guided by our belief that Diamond Nuts are Made for Homemade.

Along with our sister company (National Pecan), Diamond of California is part of Diamond Foods, LLC, headquartered in Stockton, California.  Diamond Foods is now owned by Blue Road Capital, a private equity firm based in New York, which is focused on holdings in the agricultural space.  With the support of Blue Road Capital, Diamond of California is in the midst of a major transformation to create a modern growth brand participating the growing consumer desire to incorporate more plant-based products in their diets, for reasons including health and wellness, taste, texture and variety.

Diamond of California is a leader in the culinary (recipe) nut category, with the largest branded share in America’s grocery stores.  Culinary nuts are generally raw, unflavored nuts sold in both the baking and produce departments.  Diamond is on a renewed mission to lead this category for the next generation of consumers who use nuts in cooking, baking, snacking and even in beverages.  We are still in the emerging stages of a complete brand renovation, which encompasses product, packaging, pricing, placement, marketing, and new product development.

Diamond has led the category’s marketing in the areas of social media and food influencer partnerships, partnering with a boutique San Francisco-based public relations agency.  The brand has the largest social presence in the category with nearly 800,000 followers on Facebook, approximately 5x greater than the next brand.  In addition, Diamond was an early culinary nut innovator in food influencer partnerships, working with the blogger and chef communities to create a culinary influencer program.  We partner with bloggers and chefs for content, recipes, and authentic endorsements of Diamond nuts.
