NPA is one of Australia’s leading processors of premium quality Australian almonds, proudly marketed under our Riverland Almonds brand.
NPA’s almond range is available in both kernel and inshell forms. Our three principal varieties, Nonpareil, Carmel and Price, are papershell almonds.
Nonpareil is highly favoured with an attractive appearance. It has a light golden colour with a thin outer shell and a smooth oval kernel. This variety is produced in large quantities and used extensively worldwide.
Carmel has a soft shell and an elongated medium sized kernel with a fuller almond flavour. It is frequently interchangeable with the Nonpareil variety and is easily processed.
Our high standards allow production of almonds with low levels of chips and scratches. We are able to offer the range of international grades such as Fancy, Extra Supreme, Supreme and Select Sheller Run.
18/20, 20/22, 22/24, 23/25, 25/27, 27/30, 30/35, 35/40 count (kernels per ounce).
5kg, 12.5kg and 50lb (22.7kg) cartons and 25kg sacks, 600kg and 1,000 kg bulk bags for domestic and international supply. Custom packing requirements are available.

More than 20 years of research shows that eating almonds can help with good heart health, good gut health, assisting with healthy blood sugar levels and reducing the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
Each healthy handful of almonds delivers 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of fibre, good unsaturated fats, antioxidant Vitamin E and many more vitamins and minerals.
A study by the University of Wollongong on nuts and heart health found that a regular 30 gram handful of almonds when eaten as part of a healthy, varied diet contributes to heart health without causing weight gain.
