About Us

​The story of Orchard Nutrition began in 1982 when Joe Martino had the idea to sell fruits and nuts locally in Redding, CA.  Joe’s then mother in-law, had spent years in the health food industry and was able to lend her experience to transitioning Orchard Nutrition Center from a simple fruits and nuts business to a full service health foods and supplements store serving the entire North State area.

The first store was located on Park Marina Drive and, after just two years in business, was bursting at the seams.  Joe Martino then decided to move Orchard Nutrition Center to its present location on Locust St., where Joe and his team have enjoyed serving the Redding community for the past 38 years.


To this day, Joe still runs the store with the help of his dedicated Team.  Joe Martino is proud to provide nearly 50 jobs in the Redding area ~ they live here, shop here, and attempt to source as much as possible from local organic suppliers of cheese, meat, produce, and so much more!
