Georgia is the United States’ top producer of pecans, producing an estimated 100 million pounds annually. Pecans are grown in 14 states, and the United States produces more than 80 percent of the world’s supply, providing a reliable source for your company.
Georgia pecans have been successfully introduced to a number of international markets including China, India, South Korea and Turkey, resulting in excellent margins for companies that trade in pecans around the globe.
Predictions are that strong demand will continue for the foreseeable future. Most Georgia pecan growers export their nuts in-shell at the request of their partners overseas.
