Environmental Responsibility


Green Matters

Primex has established industry leader for environmentally-friendly and sustainable nut processing and farming-practices. We are dedicated to sustainable processes and methodologies as an integral part of our culture.

  • We were the first in the industry to recycle solid waste and water across our plant.
  • In 2010, Cenergy Power designed and built our 1.1-megawatt solar photovoltaic system. The system’s design is optimized to generate over 1.7 million kilowatt-hours of clean solar power each year. This is equivalent to removing 1,283 metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere or planting 274 acres of pine forest annually.
  • All of our orchards are responsibly grown using the most advanced direct irrigation technology, so every drop of water is used effectively.
  • All processed byproducts are recycled: hulls for cattle feed and shells for electric cogeneration.
All of these efforts help Primex Farms operate efficiently and sustainably, while reducing our overall environmental impact.
