Over the past 125 years the name Bazzini has become synonymous with high-quality nuts: Cashews, Almonds, Pecans, Pistachios, Brazil Nuts, Pepitas… The original business, founded in 1886 by Italian immigrant Anthony L. Bazzini, sold nuts by the pound to bakers, street vendors and individual customers during the great depression. The legendary nut processing building still stands amid the cobblestone streets of New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood.

In 1997 Bazzini moved its original nut warehouse from the Tribeca neighborhood to Hunts Point, NY and then relocated its entire nut processing plant in 2011 with the acquisition of Barton’s Confections. The relocation to the 200,000-square-foot, state of the art manufacturing facility in Allentown, PA allowed the company to position itself for continued growth.
