Almonds are either sold as in-shell or as processed, which can include shelling, dry roasting, blanching, slicing, and chopped and converted into paste (marzipan) or flavorings. The majority of almonds are shelled during processing, and the excess casings (the hull and shell) are used in the livestock industry for both feed and bedding material.
The United States is the dominant supplier of almonds. In 2014, the country exported about 1.3 billion pounds of almonds, which were valued at $4.5 billion. Approximately 70 percent of U.S. almonds are exported as shelled almonds, with the remainder being either unshelled or manufactured.


The top exporting countries are Spain, China/Hong Kong, Germany, India, the United Arab Emirates, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Turkey, and the Netherlands.
