Who we are
Superior Nut Company started in 1929 and was incorporated in 1933. Nubar Hintlian founded the company which began in the basement of a movie theater in Ball Square, Somerville, Mass. It was basically a one person operation whereby Mr. Hintlian roasted a small quantity of nuts during nighttime and sold them during the day to retail stores. During the 1930's most salted were sold by drug stores and variety stores.
Continuing the Journey!
The company has a strong social and environmental commitment in its mission to produce the finest nut products in the world. We have been recognized with a prestigious Environmental Merit Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for our forest plantation in Central America.
This forest plantation absorbs all the carbon dioxide we emit as an energy consuming food manufacturing plant. This is an efficient model for every business in this country to reduce its emissions that cause global warming.
