The company's first nut was roasted in 1924 in a small Baltimore shop by an immigrant from Barcelona, Spain. It's still run out of Baltimore, but the plant is located in Dover, Pa., and sales are now in the multi-million dollars. Its 150 types of snack foods are distributed globally. The products come under the Barcelona banner, as well as Stonehedge Farms Popcorn.
The company buys directly form farmers and growers and roasts the nuts in peanut oil and ships them within days of getting the orders. Most sales are through wholesalers and are sold in convenience stores and supermarkets, as well as at Camden Yards and other major league ball parks.
