By employing the best equipment in the industry, Harrell Nut Company serves its customers with optimum efficiency. The company maintains two shelling plant locations, providing more options for clients while lowering the cost of shipping. Its uncompromising approach to quality control leads the industry in such procedures as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). By maintaining relationships with numerous professional organizations, such as the National Pecan Shellers Association, the Southeastern Pecan Growers Association (SEPGA), and the Produce Marketing Association (PMA), the company ensures consistency by remaining current on the latest industry standards and procedures. It has received certification according to the Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000 Code and is certified Kosher. Food safety is an overriding concern, but product costs are kept low as well. This enables the company to pay growers a higher rate and charge customers a slightly lower rate.
