Over 40 years ago, in 1982, Tri-Cal started with a sole item, Pistachio Nuts. Our Pistachio nut line was first launched in California's Central Valley market place during the early beginnings of the pistachio farming industry. As California  Pistachio Growers ourselves, our goal has always been to provide our customers roasted and salted pistachios with higher grade standards of US Extra #1 and in a large size of 21-25 nuts per oz.

Over our 40 plus years history, we have expanded our product line to include several other "Premium Select" nuts in addition to our flagship line of Pistachio Nuts.

Tri-cal since our beginnings in 1982, has always utilized Clear View Packaging. Why? Simple, to enable our customers to easily see the quality of nuts they are purchasing from us. This clean, simple, clear and we think, unique packaging in today's marketplace is superior to many other nut packaging that in many cases, uses a full graphic and covered packages that leaves the consumer wondering what's really inside.

So when you.... "Think Pistachios, Think Tri-Cal®". We "Clearly" are the best!
