A Tasty Family Tradition

The fourth-generation, family-owned Germack Pistachio Co. began roasting nuts and seeds in Detroit’s historic Eastern Market in 1924, and today provides a full line of locally roasted nuts, seeds and snack mixes. They are the inventor of “red” pistachios. Summer mixes for picnics, days at the lake or fun evening activities include Summer Crunch, Poolside Party Mix, Crispy Corn and Cashew Savory Crunch, and All-American Harvest Mix.

            Frank Germack III says, “We put more care and better ingredients into every batch, and seek out small suppliers around the world with similar values. We select only the highest-quality nuts. Our first-quality, fancy-grade nuts are gift quality; a uniform color, bigger size and more whole pieces. We roast our nuts in small batch roasters with heart-healthy canola oil for optimal roast level and taste. We control the time between roasting and delivery to ensure maximum freshness.”
