Capabilities

It started with one roaster in 1984 in Southern California and a desire to create delicious seasoned and roasted nuts and trail mixes. Today, we are still carefully preparing our classic snacks in addition to creating unique and innovative trail mixes. Century Snacks invests in our people, processes and facilities to deliver consumer-preferred products.

Our comprehensive product portfolio consists of brands including Snak Club, California Naturals and Muncheros and features over 100 flavored nut and 300 trail mix varieties.  We also have the capabilities to create and produce private brand products as well as commercial products for our national and regional partners. Operating out of a newly renovated world-class manufacturing facility in Southern California, our state-of-the-art operations enable us to facilitate a high volume of orders in a variety of package sizes and configurations.

Century Snacks is proudly SQF 3 Certified by the Safe Quality Food Institute, which is the certification system recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).  Our Level 3 Certification, the highest level of the SQF Program, means our retail customers and consumers can rest assured that their products have been produced, processed, prepared and handled according to the highest quality standards.

Process

Century Snacks is capable of sourcing and producing Kosher and Non-GMO products. Whenever possible, we source our raw nuts from U.S. growers. The nuts in our manufacturing facility are carefully inspected for quality, and any defective nuts or foreign materials are removed. Our nuts are then roasted to perfection using one of our seasoning processes: oil roasting, dry seasoning, honey and cane sugar roasting or kettle-fire roasting. Once cooled and bagged, each product is x-rayed and weighed to ensure it is free of any metals and safe for consumption.
