My company (Everblessed Corporation) exports different type of nuts from U.S to China.
Currently we are working with pecan growers in GA and export about 500 containers annually to China.
However, we currently have a need of Walnut, Almond, Macadamias and Pistachios. Growers please contact us at [email protected] for 2016 season.
Thank you very much!
