About Us

In 1907, a young immigrant named Shibley Azar opened a small nut and candy store near the Rio Grande River in El Paso, Texas. In time, he built a pecan shelling and packaging business into one of the premier nut companies in the world. Candy operations began in March 2001 with the opening of a plant in Juarez, Mexico. Currently the company employs more than 2,800 people at the following six facilities:
