L'Orenta sells gourmet nuts & goodies to everyone who loves high quality treats.
We pull from the passion for quality and taste that our family started in Amsterdam, The Netherlands over 80 years ago. We start with premium products that are primarily grown in the United States and build upon them with our signature, unique taste and luxury packaging. When you visit L’Orenta, you will be enveloped in warm aromas and exquisite tastes. Like our great grandfather so many years ago, we invite you into our home.
Sam Henselijn, CEO L'Orenta Nuts moved to the United States in 2005 to play tennis for Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. After receiving his Master in Business Administration from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi, he moved to San Antonio to work for an oil company. With the downturn in the oil industry he decided to go back to the family's roots, which has led to the creation of L’Orenta Nuts.
L'Orenta was founded in 2016, based on the same values as the original family company De Schaap. De Schaap grew to become one of the largest nut manufacturers and companies in Europe. Hocorn, B.V a subsidiary from "De Schaap" is the only company that the family did not sell. Hocorn B.V., a large import/export distribution company in Europe, specializing in everything food related is a minority owner in L'Orenta.
The company operates out of San Antonio, TX.
