Pecan Peanuts produces a variety of packeted nut products from its main factory in the UK. Two main packet sizes are available, a smaller one for snack-size sales and a larger one for home baking sales. Pecan Peanuts also sells other snack nut products (cashews and pistachios) but both pecans and peanuts are by far the best sellers.
The Company imports shell-on nuts mainly from Australia.
Business has fared well since the Company set up production in 2017. Indeed, there has been a steady increase in net profits every year since start up.
