This is because they are well known as the single suppliers for this ingredient. Some products have a variety of origins all over the world.

Macadamia nuts used to be a product of Hawaii but now Kenya and Mexico supply much more product than the Hawaiian Islands ever could. Many of our items are imported from different countries but most dried fruits and many nuts are grown right here in the U.S.A..
