Makin dry nuts | Grower, Processor, Supplier and Exporter of Greek origin Dried Nuts

     Makin dried nuts is a family-owned and operated company, established at 1983 by John Makanikas in rural area of Almyros in central Greece. From the start of our busines, operations include farming, hulling, shelling, processing, packing, shipping / exporting dried nuts such as Greek almonds, inshell pistachios, pistachio kernels, and walnuts. Firstly, we cultivate the dried nuts in our lands, and then we crack - break the shells of nuts. After careful processing we pack the kernels in bulk and trade / commerce them in wholesale prices. We offer to our customers premium quality edible nuts from Greek farms which are famous for its premium quality and excellent taste. It is universally acknowledged that Greece, thanks to its climate and location, produces the best agricultural products. The quite hot summers and mild winters of the near to sea region of Almyros, create an ideal climate for producing the highest quality almonds and pistachios in the world.

    The vertical integrated production of dried nuts (planting, growing, hulling, shelling, cleaning, sorting, grading, sizing, processing, in-house fumigation, logistics packing, and then shipping and delivering) allows us to offer you 100% warranty of best price in Greek dried nuts.

    Along with proprietary crops, Makin dry nuts has also created an extensive network of cooperation and assosiation with Greek growers claiming to know the proper cultivation (soil conditions, irrigation, fertilization, pruning, pest management, etc.). Our team of farmers consists of: 40 almonds producers, 52 pistachios growers, 12 walnuts cultivators and 7 hazelnuts farmers that have planted more than 50.000 trees in 450 acres, while the number of hectares is continiously rising. Only the last two years more than 80 hectares have been tree planted especially with almonds and secondly with pistachios and walnuts trees.
