Only the best pecans for a best-selling pastry
Delicious pecan nuts 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 the quality consumers expect is also the quality they get.
Focus on sustainability
“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.”
