We handpick all of our ingredients in order to craft the perfect pastry. Be it the flour, the filling or the pecans for topping. We strive in our efforts to ensure quality, while being socially and environmentally responsible.
Only the best pecans for our worldwide best-selling pastry!
Delicious pecans are the crowning glory of the Schulstad Maple Pecan Plait. Not surprisingly, consumers have high expectations.
We source our pecans from two of the world’s leading pecan plantations in Arizona to ensure our quality standards are met.
“One of the plantations in particular is doing a lot of sustainability work. Solar panels are being installed to meet energy needs; sprinkler systems installed to reduce water consumption; and natural fertiliser is being produced from nuts shells and husk,” Kevin reports.
New machinery installed within the pecan factories has also reduced the need for manual labor, improving staff working conditions and stepping up quality and food safety control.
“Both the plantations visited have all the accreditation we require. We know the trees are grown and looked after very well, so consumers get a very good pecan.”
