U.S. Pecans Mission Statement

The mission of the U.S. Pecan Growers Council is to develop strategies and expand international activities that increase the prospects for promotions and sales of U.S. pecans in foreign markets. The primary goal is to promote the pecan as a healthy and nutritious snack food and as a key ingredient in both consumer and industrial recipes. Those activities leverage funding from private industry and funds from the federal marketing programs administered by USDA/Foreign Ag Service.

International Strategy

The USPGC has successfully undertaken marketing activities since 2010 in Canada, China, India, South Korea, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Western Europe, and Vietnam.  Operations at the present time are focused on China, India, South Korea, Turkey and Vietnam.
