Setton Pistachio Co., Inc.
Madera, California 93637

The Queen of Sheba was especially fond of pistachio nuts and is said to have monopolized the limited pistachio output of Assyria for Herself and Her court favourites.

Pistachia vera is a deciduous tree which grows slowly to a height of twenty-five yo thirty feet. It can survive under dry, adverse conditions in poor, stony terrain where for the most of the year there may be no rainfall.

The male tree bears the pollen and the female the nut. A single shaking of the tree will bring down the bulk of the mature nuts. Pistachios vary considerably in size. The biggest and the most open are roasted and salted by our staff under super special care to give it the finest taste and flavor. It is then immediately packed and shipped to You to savor this rare delicous nut.


Setton International Foods, Inc. has recently added a planning operation to its facilities, introducing a new line of chocolate-coated and yogurt-coated items, including various nuts and dried fruit.
Previously known as an international wholesaler of dried fruit and nuts, Setton International has also broadened distribution with the introduction of a complete line of candy.
Setton acquired the present 50,000-square-foot facility in Commack, Long Island, in 1992 and moved the operation there from Plainview. The company now sells more than five million pounds of cashews per year, and millions of pounds of various other nuts, edible seeds, and dried fruit, now being augmented by the chocolate-coated and yogurt-coated nuts and fruit.
The company was founded by Joshua and Morris Setton in 1959, originlly located in a small bakery/grocery store that that served the growing Middle Eastern market in New York City and the vincety.
In 1971 the company expanded into gourmet foods with the opening of a new store at Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn, known as "The Five Continents Gourmet Food, Inc.," which is still in operation. By 1978 they had expanded to nine stores located throughout the New York and New Jersey metropolitan area.
Setton International's wholesale operation began in 1981, when they opened their warehouse in Plainview, Long Island, and began packaging and distributing pistachios, cashews, and various other nuts and edible seeds, dried fruit and natural mixes. In 1982 the company began importing various products and in 1983 they added a roasting facility.
Setton Pistachio Co. was founded in 1986 and the new company constructed a pistachio processing plant in Madera, California. Setton Pistachio acquires and processes the pistachios direct from the growers. In 1986, the company processed one million pounds of nuts, and by 1994 the quota had grown to more than 10 million. The plant now employs more than 100 people year-round and operates three shifts, literally around the clock. By 1999 Ke Processing is about 26 Million.
Setton International Foods, Inc. began to export various food products to Orient and Europe in 1991, and also purchased the company's first pistachio orchard, also in Madera, California.

Important Highlight

A New York-based food processor is acquiring a pistachio-packaging operation from Dole Fruit & Nut plant in Terra Bella, Tulare County officials said.
The move will bring to 225 the number of employees Setton International Foods Inc. has at its existing plant in Madera and at the new one, said Carri Dilts, community development specialist for Tulare County. She said the Madera plant employs 90 people.
