Georgia Pecan Tour to Host Culinary Buyers 

Culinary buyers, the largest purchaser of food in the developed world, are the target audience for the tour. They purchase high volumes of food and beverage products in bulk packaging, and price is not the only factor in their purchase decision. Culinary buyers are busy and very discerning customers who make buying decisions based on price as well as nutritional value, food safety, traceability, brand or product stories, relationships with producers, flavor profiles and much more.

What is the Purpose of the Georgia Pecan Tour?

The purpose of the tour is to increase the understanding and use of Georgia Pecans by culinary buyers and increase sales of Georgia Pecans. For buyers, this is a unique and exclusive opportunity to learn about the various sizes and varieties available, how the native tree nut is grown and harvested, and be able to trust the flavor and production methods, safety, and availability of premium Georgia pecans.
