Our shelling plant is used to crack and shell in-shell pecans to extract the nutmeat hidden within the shell and the in-house Quality Control/Micro Laboratory is located on site as well. The shelling plant processes graded in-shell pecans through a conditioning and cracking process. Once cracked, the nutmeat is harvested and dried to lower the moisture content to meet specified levels. The pecans shells produced during the shelling process are sent to our shell grinding facility and the dried nutmeats are shipped to our finished processing plant.
The finished processing plant of South Georgia Pecan Company utilizes state of the art processing equipment to produce finished pecan products that meet the tightest specifications in the pecan industry. This plant uses electronic sorting machines, linear and stacked sizing equipment, cutting and slicing equipment, visual inspection tables, quality control inspection stations, and automated packaging lines to produce bulk and retail packaged pecan products. This plant is also equipped with segregated oil roasting and dry roasting lines, 50,000 sq. ft. freezer, and a Propylene Oxide Sterilization System.
