Blue Diamond almond plant opens in Turlock

About 300 people turned out this morning for the grand opening of the Blue Diamond Growers almond processing plant in Turlock, a welcome boost for the job market. The plant has about 50 employees now, could reach 100 by year's end and might have as many as 300 when it's at full operation within a decade, said Mark Jansen, president and chief executive officer, in an interview before the event.
