For Buyers

Hello and thank you for your inquiry.

We welcome new customers. However, due to the volume of inquiries from foreign countries per day, we have developed the attached new customer set up form and banking set up form for you to complete.

We want to work with you! However, international trade is very risky.

The pathway to your company conducting business with us here at JSS Amonds, are the following 3 PATHS:

  1. You are welcomed to set up a meeting in advance and come visit our facility in Bakersfield, CA. USA, in person and open negotiations.
    + PLUS
    As a new buyer to JSS Almonds we operate on 100% upfront deposit for the first load basis until credit worthiness is established. Then, over time, we offer to take a percentage deposit only and then, eventually, trade credit.
    OR
  2. Provide a viable trade reference from California Almond Trade, something recent (within 6 months) and be able to prove the transaction with names and phone numbers and invoice.
    AND
  3. Fully complete the attached forms and return to Kristin Keys, kristin@jesssmith.com

Additionally, please note that we will quote the market after we have met in person or a deposit is posted or the forms are fully completed.

We respect your time and hope you will conduct your business likewise.

Thank you & Best Regards!
